asked the Minister of Agriculture whether any county war agricultural committees have evolved plans for the voluntary formation of groups of small farms in their areas, so facilitating joint arrangements for purchasing expansion machinery and pooling labour resources and plant?

Mr. Hudson:

County war agricultural executive committees have been instructed to take steps to organise co-operation between farmers in order to make the most efficient use of available machinery, and propaganda is being carried on by the committees and through other agencies to further this "Help-your-neighbour" campaign.
