HC Deb 20 February 1935 vol 298 c352W

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will arrange for publication in the annual Agricultural Returns of the total number of acres in this country devoted to bulb-growing and the total quantity of bulbs produced, in order to give satisfication to those bulb-growers who wish to extend their acreage and who have asked him for this information?


The items to be included in the Agricultural Returns Schedule for 1935 are now under review and the hon. Member's suggestion for the inclusion of the acreage devoted to bulbs will receive my careful consideration. The provisions of the Agricultural Returns Act, 1925, preclude me from requiring occupiers to state in their annual 4th June return the quantity of bulbs produced.
