asked the Minister of Agriculture whether there are any travelling scholarships offered by his Department which enable young men already farming to make a direct study of farming practice in other countries, or whether he will consider introducing such a scheme.

My Department does not itself offer travelling scholarships for young farmers to study farming in other countries. I do not think that such scholarships are needed in view of the facilities which are already offered by other organisations, some of which receive grants from the Department.
