HC Deb 12 May 1953 vol 515 c74W
Mr. Baker

asked the Minister of Agriculture if the Government will consider, in consultation with the National Farmers' Union, legislation for the establishment of a national farmers' and land bank, in order to develop to the full our agricultural resources and assist in the development of marginal land.

Sir T. Dugdale

I am, of course, ready to consider suggestions of this nature from responsible sources, but as at present advised I see no need for the creation of new institutions for the provision of credit for the fanning industry.
