§ Captain R. TERRELL
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture whether he is aware that the Oxfordshire Executive of the National Farmers' Union has passed a resolution viewing with alarm the delay in introducing the promised Bill on agriculture, and that at the meeting it was suggested that the hon. and gallant Member for Dudley (Sir A. Boscawen) had given them to understand that it was doubtful if it would be introduced this Session at all; and whether, under these circumstances, he can now make any definite statement on the intentions of the Government in this matter?
§ Mr. R. McNEILL
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture what is the nature of the difficulties which have delayed the introduction of the Bill dealing with agriculture; 1266W whether those difficulties have yet been removed; and when the Bill will be introduced?
Sir A. BOSCAWEN
I regret that I am not in a position to add anything to my previous replies on this subject, except that I never stated that there was any doubt as to the Bill being introduced this Session, as suggested by the hon. and gallant Member for Henley (Captain R. Terrell).
