asked the Minister of Agriculture what instructions he has issued for the greatest possible utilisation of golf courses in the interests of food production; and whether he is satisfied that such instructions are being carried out?

I have instructed county war agricultural executive committees to arrange for the ploughing up of suitable areas of golf courses which include land capable of bearing satisfactory crops and in other cases for the utilisation of suitable land for grazing. I have no reason to suppose that these instructions are not being carried out.
