Alert me about debates like this

Mr. De la Bère:

asked the Prime Minister whether he will find time for the Motion standing in the name of the hon. Member for Evesham relating to Agriculture (War Measures):

[That this House regrets the failure of the Government to develop and revitalise agriculture since the outbreak of the war, is of opinion that the half measures introduced under the Agriculture (Miscellaneous War Provisions) Bill are insufficient and inadequate, submits that the war is no excuse for postponing action, both broad and generous, but is a cogent reason for taking it at once and urges on the Government the necessity for full consideration being given to these matters by the chairman of the War Cabinet Committee dealing with agriculture in conference with the Minister of Agriculture and the Minister of Food, forthwith.]
