HC Deb 06 March 1941 vol 369 cc1041-2W
Mrs Tate

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is satisfied with the number of threshing machines now available?

Mr. Hudson

The threshing tackle in the hands of private contractors and farmers has been supplemented by Government machines placed at the disposal of county war agricultural executive committees and I am satisfied that, generally speaking, the total equipment available has been sufficient to cope with the increased volume of threshing work in the season now closing.
