§ 11. Mr. CLANCY
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture how many potato growers in Great Britain have received or are to receive payment under the potato guarantee price for 1917; and what is the total amount paid or to be paid?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of FOOD (Mr. Clynes)
I have been asked to reply. The number 1079 of potato growers in Great Britain who have received compensation under the Potato Order No. 2, 1917, at the present moment is approximately 800, and the sum of money so distributed is approximately £20,000. The number of potato growers who will receive payment, and the amount that they will receive, cannot at the present time be estimated accurately.
