HC Deb 03 March 1924 vol 170 cc1013-4W

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he can define the farmers' enterprises for the assistance of which £200,000 is to be included in next year's Estimates; and whether he will give the conditions upon which this particular sum is to be advanced?


The types of co-operative societies to be aided by loans include bacon factories; milk depots and butter and cheese-making centres; fruit grading, packing and collecting societies; live stock auction marts; co-operative slaughter houses; egg collecting depots; and any other organisations concerned with the preparation and marketing of agricultural produce. I will send a statement, giving the conditions in full, to the hon. Baronet.
