asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture if he will state the prices the Government propose to guarantee for wheat, barley, and oats in the season1919–20; what machinery will be set up assuming the market price falls below the guaranteed price; and whether, unlike the potatoes this year, the farmer will be guaranteed a market at a reasonable period for his cereals?


I regret that I can not add anything to the answer given by the President of the Board of Agriculture and Fisheries to my right hon. Friend on 19th November last, but I hope to be in a position to make a definite statement as to the method by which the undertaking then given will be carried out before the end of this month, or in any case before the House rises for the Easter adjournment.
