Major Frank Heilgers: How many Assyrians are there still left in Iraq?
Major Frank Heilgers: Are there any regulations for horses not sold for butchery on arrival, but sold for use in private service?
Major Frank Heilgers: Cannot my right hon. Friend ask the President of the Board of Trade to take steps to revise the voluntary "gentleman's agreement" quoted?
Major Frank Heilgers: Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that storage in stacks is the most desirable way of storing grain?
Major Frank Heilgers: The hon. Member for Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams), who has just sat down, said he would never object to the producer and the worker having a square deal, and I am exceedingly glad to know that the hon. Members opposite are going to regard the producer with a more favour- able eye than they have done in the past. He also said that it was no good asking the workers to buy more foodstuffs...
Major Frank Heilgers: Is it not a fact that partly pasteurised milk is infinitely more dangerous to the public health than ordinary clean milk?
Major Frank Heilgers: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that any further concession would be unpopular among the pioneer growers in East Anglia?
Major Frank Heilgers: Can my right hon. Friend say how many agricultural workers have been displaced?
Major Frank Heilgers: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that, if any transference takes place, the only possible place for the Stud in this country is Newmarket?
Major Frank Heilgers: Would it not be a good thing to settle these Assyrians in Transjordania where they would be a barrier against Wahabi penetration?
Major Frank Heilgers: The Minister spoke of the danger of over-organisation.
Major Frank Heilgers: I am glad to hear that cheer from the hon. Member for South Croydon (Mr. H. Williams), because he was absent when the Minister referred to it. Personally, I would like to say that this Development Board is the biggest step forward in the planning of agriculture we have had so far. I do not believe that any marketing scheme can survive unless it has some connecting neutral link, as we have in...
Major Frank Heilgers: 14. asked the Minister of Agriculture wheter he is aware that there was a 21 per cent. increase in the number of eggs in shell imported in June, 1935, as compared with June, 1934; and whether he can state what percentage of these eggs have been put into cold storage?
Major Frank Heilgers: In view of the fact that the industry is extremely anxious lest these eggs should be put into cold storage and produced when production and home prices are at their maximum, will the right hon. Gentleman make further investigation and give an answer if I put down a question next week?
Major Frank Heilgers: 2. asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can give the House any information in his possession as to the proposal, made at the Peace Conference in 1919, to hand over the Zeila corridor to Abyssinia, and the reason why the proposal was not proceeded with?
Major Frank Heilgers: Had there been any proposal to hand over Zeila to Abyssinia at any time prior to the recent offer?
Major Frank Heilgers: 16. asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that, although pigs graded as A and B under the marketing scheme are paid for at prices according to grade, the bacon is subsequently sold at the same price; and whether he will take steps to make the grading and prices correspond?
Major Frank Heilgers: Will the right hon. Gentleman draw the attention of the Pigs and Bacon Marketing Boards to the fact that the reduction of the present number of grades from five to three will probably solve the question?
Major Frank Heilgers: It is satisfactory that the Minister has got this agreement with the Dominions. The only thing in it about which I am anxious is the question of the carry-over which we were told of, with regard to the third quarter and whether, if it is very large, it will not prejudice the Christmas market considerably. I am sorry that the hon. Member for Don Valley (Mr. T. Williams) is not in his place as...
Major Frank Heilgers: I should like to echo to a certain extent the appeal which has just been made by the hon. Member for Leominster (Sir E. Shepperson). I agree with the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Swindon (Dr. Addison) that we cannot part with the beet-sugar industry, but there is undoubtedly need for better Government control of the finances that are paid out to the factories. That, however, is no...
