HC Deb 18 March 1937 vol 321 cc2276-7W
Mr. Maitland

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether there is any margin for the expansion of the home production of food on the basis of the present yield of agricultural land?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

On the basis of existing yields per acre of individual crops, the total production of food could be increased by the ploughing up of grassland for the production of arable crops.
