asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that in a recent prosecution by the county council of Essex, under Section 6 (1) (a) of the Fertilisers and Feeding Stuffs Act, 1906, three witnesses stated on oath that they formed part of a deputation from the Retail Corn Dealers' Association which attended on the Ministry in 1921, and that on that occasion a definite understanding was come to with the Ministry that the provisions of the said Section would not be enforced if there was a label in or on the bag containing the feeding stuff giving the required percentages of oil and albuminoids contained in the Acts, etc.; whether any such understanding as above mentioned was come to on the occasion referred to; and whether the understanding is still effectual?
