HC Deb 18 June 1940 vol 362 c41W
Mr. Snadden

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has considered the danger of fire by enemy action of crops growing, and to be stacked, throughout the country; and will his Department issue guidance to farmers on this subject?

Mr. Brown

The answer to both parts of the Question is in the affirmative. I discussed this question with representatives of the National Farmers' Union and Chamber of Agriculture for Scotland last week and I am in consultation with my right hon. Friend, the Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries regarding the guidance which may be given to farmers on the subject.
