Yorwerth, of the Soutli East e.s borage Department, Cardiff, spoke to a Oil ^arD3ers at the County Hall, Brecon, r^ay afternon, on the new regulations for an(^ (^sl)08a^ ^iaJ" an(l straw crops for S. Sliller, who presided, said Captain j would be willing to give information ,^>rs who applied to him as to what the «Heratioils were in regard to meeting any to ♦! ^'eiicy and difficulty which might arise as s<ile of straw and oats. I Yorwerth remarked that no class of Peo '\Ptain Yorwerth remarked that no class of tj)e e had been affected so much by the war as j a§riculturists. They were bound by so orders that perhaps they did not know I* J* "where they were from one week's end ""Dther and he felt that in meeting them (fo to face he was serving a good purpose. look'll', hear). The Army in the past had not iw to Breconshire for hay. It was a stock- county, and more good was done by 9 it alone, as far as the commandeering D0 "vas concerned, since it would have been ^lefit to the agriculturist or the community But circumstances had now arisen It ulade it to the best interests of the iftv r t: the Army should purchase seme 4j)' ?r stra\v in Breconshire. The ploughing j so much grass land would increase the 4^ of oat and wheat straw by a very large' and there would be an outlet for the H^^turists of this county for their straw j **the new scheme. This year private pur- \f) !¡g would be done away with the Army a:Jq d be the only purchasers for all the hay f0r Jraw in the Kingdom. They would buy la e civilian as well as the Army, so that L^the purchasing officer went to a farm and w! say, 50 tons of hay and 50 of straw, he frjj.
