§ 1.12 a.m.
Mr. De la Bère
I feel that this procedure to-night is the most futile, fantastic and fatuous happening that has ever occurred in the House of Commons. That it could not have been arranged and seen to before is no credit to the House of Commons and no help to the agricultural community.
§ Mr. T. Williams
There is only one observation I want to make. While the proceedings to-night may have appeared unseemly I think the right hon. and gallant Gentleman the Minister of Agriculture has done himself real credit by his response to the general request from all 373 parts of the House. I hope he will look back upon this day not as one where he was weak but as one where he exercised strength, and I think the Wheat Commission will thank him.
