Mr William Stewart: I was saying that my right hon.

Orders of the Day — Agricultural Marketing Acts, 1931 and 1933. (19 Dec 1933)

Mr William Stewart: I understand the right hon. Gentleman's point. But he produced certain telegrams which he had received from certain mass meetings of farmers.

These men are...
