HC Deb 03 July 1940 vol 362 cc849-50W
Sir A. Baillie

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is satisfied that farmers at the present time command the financial resources to expand production; and what steps are taken to meet cases where farmers are finding difficulty in this respect?

Mr. Hudson

I think that the majority of farmers at the present time possess sufficient financial resources or can obtain the necessary accommodation. Farmers who find difficulty in doing so may obtain assistance from County War Agricultural Executive Committees in various ways.
