asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether the Report of the Committee for investigating the costs of production of wheat and other agricultural produce on the basis of the rates of agricultural wages recently fixed will soon be published, in view of its importance both for the guidance of farmers and for the information of the Royal Commission?


The Committee appointed by the Agricultural Wages Board to report on financial results of farming and the costs of living have presented their Report and it was laid before Parliament on 14th March. The Agricultural Costings Committee is at present considering a scheme of work throughout the United Kingdom and organising a staff for the purpose, but will not be in a position to make a Report for some time.
