Dumping of German Wheat.

The House, I am sure, will feel very disappointed with the speech of the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture. The Debate has been very interesting and has been marked by several good maiden speeches, notably that of the hon. Mem- ber for East Leicester (Mr. Wise), and the hon. Member whom we are glad to see on account of the admirable work he has done for agriculture, the hon. Member for Wellingborough (Mr. Dallas). He made one remarkable statement. He said that if his party were to set up a buying organisation they would say to Germany, "No, we do not want any of your wheat." That means the total prohibition of all imports, which is going much further than some of the Protectionists oh this side of the House, with whom I do not agree.
