HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 cc1234-5W
Mr. Price

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that Shire horse societies in various parts of the country will not be able to continue then-work and may have to go out of existence because of the withdrawal of Government grants; and whether he will reconsider the matter with a view to giving some assistance?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

I have received representations in the sense indicated by the hon. Member, but I regret that, after the fullest consideration, I cannot see my way to withdraw the suspension of these grants.
