Agriculture.: National Mark Scheme. (2 Jun 1930)

Mr Noel Buxton: The Birmingham wholesale butchers have carried out their decision to cease offering their beef for grading and marking. They have been supported by a resolution passed by the retail butchers' association representing, it is believed, about 40 per cent. of the trade. Consequently, no beef was graded and marked on Saturday inside the City Meat Market. The wholesalers have stated that the scheme...

These ponies were all landed at Ghent and were sold, according to the Ministry's information, for work. An Inspector...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Government Proposals). (26 May 1930)

Mr Noel Buxton: Hon. Members on both sides have expressed the anxiety which all feel in regard to our agriculture. Everyone, of course, is concerned for the depression which prevails in the cereal areas, and everyone welcomes a practical suggestion from any quarter. The Noble Lord made a very practical suggestion. He touched on the question of the potato crop and market. There you have a problem which is...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Government Proposals). (26 May 1930)

Mr Noel Buxton: Yes, but I went back on that and removed all restrictions to the discussion. You had there the most eminent, and also the chosen representatives of responsible elements in the industry, and yet it is very remarkable that no agreement was reached between the three parties on any single definite proposal. That is very indicative of the difficulty of the situation. Let all the parties prove...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Government Proposals). (26 May 1930)

Mr Noel Buxton: Not at all. I greatly regret that common ground was not found by the Conference, but there may well be measures to be found in the programme of one party or another which could, in these difficult times, command the assent of Members in any party. Let us see what practicable proposals can be found which do command a majority. The Labour policy needs no elaboration here, because no policy is...

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Government Proposals). (26 May 1930)

Mr Noel Buxton: I had better confine my remarks to the records of the past. It appears to me that the rival policy put forward, the action of the Conservative party in the past, has been characterised by one remarkable feature. It has been a succession of sudden changes of policy, one might say of rushes to the head, of serious attacks of subsidy complex. In 1923 we had a sudden proposal for the £1 an acre...
