§ 4. Major COLVILLE
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is now in a position to state his proposals for assisting potato growers in Scotland?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for SCOTLAND (Mr. William Adamson)
I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the hon. and learned Member for East 2078 Fife (Mr. Millar) on the 17th December. I am not in a position to make any further statement at present.
§ Major COLVILLE
Can the right hon. Gentleman say if he will be able to make a definite pronouncement after the Recess in regard to this very important question?
§ Mr. HARDIE
Have the Secretary of State for Scotland or his Department considered the question of using surplus potatoes for the purpose of producing potato spirit, as they do in Germany?
§ Sir KINGSLEY WOOD
Cannot we have an answer from the right hon. Gentleman to my hon. and gallant Friend's question as to whether he is going to make a definite pronouncement after the Christmas Recess? It is an elementary question.
§ Mr. ADAMSON
I have already replied to the question, that I will give an answer as quickly as I can.
