HC Deb 12 November 1940 vol 365 cc1601-2W
Sir A. Baillie

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that, so far as Kent in concerned the Army command cannot spare soldiers to help to fill the craters on agricultural land; that six craters and more have occurred in a single field; and whether, in view of the cost of about £20 to fill each crater and the shortage of labour, he will arrange for a mechanised navvy to travel round the country and do what is necessary in the way of repairs?

Mr. Hudson

The answers to all parts of this Question are in the negative.
