asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware of the shortage of grain sacks in the Lindsey Division of Lincolnshire which is causing dislocation of threshing operations; and what steps does he propose to take to help the farming community with this difficulty.

I am aware of seasonal difficulties with regard to the. supply of grain sacks in some parts of the country, but no representations have been received by me or by the County War Agricultural Executive Committee from farmers in the Lindsey area to the effect that a shortage of sacks is dislocating their threshing operations. I am, however, making inquiries with a view to dealing with any special shortage of sacks that may be found to exist in that district.
