§ Mr. T. Williams
asked the Minister of Agriculture how many reports have been received from each county agricultural war executive concerning the operations of district committees; and whether he is satisfied that these committees are functioning as effectively as is desired?
§ Sir R. Dorman-Smith
At my request county war agricultural executive committees submit fortnightly progress reports, particularly in regard to the area of grassland scheduled for ploughing-up and the service of directions as to cultivation. This work is, of course, largely based on the operations of district committees, and all the evidence I have received goes to show that the progress made has been satisfactory and that district committees are functioning effectively.
