I appreciate the difficulties in which my right hon. Friend finds himself regarding these large schemes of drainage, but does he appreciate that the position is more difficult for the farmers involved, because if an individual farmer were involved, and wished to undertake these schemes, without doubt he would get an allowance of 33⅓ per cent, under the terms of the new White Paper; but because a scheme is too large for him to undertake by himself, he gets nothing?
I am very anxious to get on with these drainage improvement schemes as fast as possible. I am carefully considering the question of most urgent priority for them, and I look forward with confidence to the day when we shall be able to remove all the present restrictions on these desirable developments.
