§ 69. Lord SCONE
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland the acreage under potatoes in Scotland, together with the average price of ware potatoes, in each of the years 1923 to 1932, inclusive?
§ Sir G. COLLINS
As the answer involves a table of figures I propose, with my Noble Friend's permission, to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
§ Following is the answer:
|Year.||Acreage.||Year.||Price per ton.|
§ Note.—The price per ton, in the years 1923 to 1931 inclusive, is the average wholesale price at certain representative markets in Scotland of ordinary ware for the period from September in one year to July in the following year and, in the year 1932, for the period from September to November.
