asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will issue in- structions to the county war agricultural committees, in connection with those 18-hole golf courses throughout the country which have not cultivated any part of their land, urging on them the desirability of utilising nine holes, or part of the course, for cultivation, having regard to the fact that this would still enable healthy exercise to be pursued?

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave him on 24th June.

Why does not my right hon. Friend make more widely known to the public the fact that there is less land now under cultivation than there was at the beginning of hostilities? Would people not realise then the need to get this land under cultivation? My right hon. Friend does not take any notice whatever.
