Feeding Stuffs.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture. – in the House of Commons at on 6 May 1937.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. De la Bère:

asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps are being taken to assist all milk producers in this country to produce an increase of homegrown feeding stuffs, since the high prices of foreign feeding stuffs are making milk production uneconomical?

It is a matter for milk producers themselves to decide what proportion of their feeding stuffs they will produce on their farms.

Mr. De la Bère:

Is this not a case which the National Food Production Act, if it came into being, could deal with and help the country forward with?

This is obviously a matter for the milk producers, and I expect that they know their own business as well as the hon. Member.

While thanking the Minister for his advice to producers, may I ask whether he will not advise the cow which provides the milk to produce it on less foodstuffs?
