AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS. On Wednesday a deputation from the Royal Agri- cultural Society waited upon Lord Carlingford and Mr. J. G. Dodson (who were accompanied by Mr. West, of the Inland Revenue Department) to put before the Privy Council recommendations in favour of an annual return showing the number and average i weight of animals bred and slaughtered in the United Kingdom. The deputation was introduced by Sir Brandreth Gibbs, and included Sir Massey Lopes, Lord Wilbraham Egerton, Mr. James Howard, M.P., Mr. J. Dent Dent, and Mr. Jacob Wilson. The speakers urged that such a return, if it could be ob- tained from the farmers and butchers, would be of the greatest value.J Lord Carlingford, in reply, said the department were in accord with the object of the deputation, and the only question was as to the means of accomplish- ing their object. It might be useful if the depart- ment prepared a draft return, a copy of which would be forwarded to the Royal Agricultural Society. Any recommendations emanating from that body ] would receive most careful attention. Mr. Dodson said that, although the Privy Council had been most anxious to get the information necessary, they had been unable to obtain information sufficiently trustworthy to put before the public. Mr. West said his department would offer no im- ] pediment to this return, but the farmers were rather apt to resent applications for information as to their business. The deputation then retired. (
