§ Captain TERRELL
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, taking the figures for the first week in February, 1923, and February, 1924, he can state whether the prices of feeding stuffs which the farmer buys have increased or decreased; and what is the relative change in the prices of artificial fertilisers?
§ Mr. BUXTON
Wholesale prices of feeding stuffs were, on the whole, rather dearer in the first week of this month than in the corresponding week in 1923. Prices of most sorts of fertilisers were lower this year.
