HC Deb 12 February 1942 vol 377 c1598W
Mr. A. Edwards

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that most farmers are harassed by the filling in of forms and returns for which they are untrained to such an extent as to interfere with the maximum production; and whether he will simplify the systems of control?

Mr. T. Williams

I am aware that most farmers have a good many forms to complete but I can assure the hon. Member that as far as my own Department is concerned the number of forms issued is restricted to the barest minimum compatible with the efficient organisation of the food production campaign.
