§ 43. Captain PETER MACDONALD
asked the Minister of Agriculture how the area at present under sugar-beet in Great Britain compares with that at this time last year?
§ Dr. ADDISON
Provisional figures furnished by beet-sugar factories indicate that the acreage of beet contracted for 1931 is about 230,000 acres. The actual area in 1930 was 348,920 acres.
