§ Sir C. CAYZER
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his Department possesses a list of bulb-growers in this country which it is ready to supply on application to intending British bulb purchasers; whether he is aware of the difficulty experienced in obtaining such information from his Department; and whether he will investigate the methods of foreign representatives of competing trade nations in this country?
§ Dr. ADDISON
Intending purchasers of British bulbs are supplied on application to my Department with the name of a growers' association and are also referred to certain county education authorities whose horticultural officers are acquainted with the particular varieties of bulbs raised by the growers in their districts. I am not aware that this practice has given rise to any difficulty, and I do not consider that the special investigation suggested in the last part of the question is required.
