The International Congress of Agriculture: MEETING AT THE HAGUE



    THE seventeenth International Congress of Agriculture was held at The Hague on June 16–24. Great Britain was officially represented for the first time for many years, though at recent congresses members of the Women's Institutes and the Horace Plunkett Foundation have been present. There is always a tendency in Great Britain to regard international congresses, other than those of specialists, as somewhat in the nature of 'joy-rides'. Languages undoubtedly present a difficulty that weighs more upon our people than upon Continentals, and this applies more particularly to those informal discussions and personal contacts from which those who participate in the Congress gain most.
