HC Deb 18 December 1946 vol 431 cc388-9W
90. Mr. Collins

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, in view of the importance of making the best possible use of grass for feeding purposes, he will consider granting licences for the installation of grass-drying plants on land under his control and also provide facilities for the leasing of empty sheds for storage purposes.

Mr. P. Noel-Baker

We have already granted about 30 licences for grass drying and are willing to consider further applications. Storage space is arranged wherever possible. I hope that the acreage for which licences are granted will be greatly extended during 1947.
