HC Deb 18 February 1924 vol 169 cc1323-4W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that during the spring months of last year farmers in this country had difficulty in obtaining supplies of sulphate of ammonia, and that large quantities of this fertiliser are exported from this country; and whether he will take steps to ensure that a sufficient amount of the material is retained in this country and is made available to British agriculturalists during seed time this year?


I am aware that in some districts the supply of sulphate of ammonia for immediate delivery in the spring of last year was not large. I am advised that the supplies available this year will be sufficient, but the matter will be kept under observation.
