HC Deb 21 March 1910 vol 15 c760

asked if it was proposed to devote a reasonable portion of the Development Grant to the encouragement of the growth of sugar beet in the United Kingdom, and the manufacture of sugar, according to the most scientific methods in use on the Continent?


The promotion of the growth of sugar beet in this country would certainly be a purpose for which grants might suitably be made out of the Development Fund, but the matter is one primarily for the consideration of the Development Commission when it is constituted.
