31. Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
asked what steps are being taken by the Scottish Board of Agriculture to secure that adequate estimates of the probable fruit crop in Scotland and of the seasons at which it will be ready for preserving will be laid before the Sugar Commission, in order that the undertaking of the Chancellor of the Exchequer that sufficient sugar would be supplied to preserve the total fruit crop may be fulfilled?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
The Board are taking steps to ascertain the area under fruit, and to form an estimate of the yield and of the seasons at which the fruit will be ready for preserving for the purpose indicated by my hon. Friend.
