asked the Minister of Agriculture whether his post-war scheme for agriculture envisages the development of cattle breeding so as to diminish the need for importing store cattle from Ireland?
I outlined to the House on 28th July last my plans for the development of cattle breeding during the next four years, and specially referred to the rearing of more calves for both beef and milk production. As I announced or. 28th October, discussions with the agricultural industry on post-war policy have now been authorised. I cannot anticipate the outcome of those discussions.
