asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will investigate the notice to quit to Mr. Tom Mountain, of Beesley House Farm, North Thoresby, Lincolnshire, which he has worked satisfactorily for 18 years, and where there is a good herd of pedigree Lincoln Red cattle; and if he will give the tenant farmer every possible protection.

Yes I have already asked the county war agricultural executive committee to make an investigation into the landlord's application for my consent to the notice to quit served on this tenant, in the course of which both parties will have opportunity to state their cases in person. In the light of the committee's report, I shall in due course consider whether or not to give my consent under Defence Regulation 62 (4A).
