HC Deb 01 February 1934 vol 285 cc545-6
71. Captain HEILGERS

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether legislation as regards the future of the sugar-beet industry will be introduced in the near future?


The legislation referred to in the answer that I gave on 27th July last in reply to a question on this subject by my hon. Friend, the Member for North Norfolk (Mr. T. Cook), will, I hope, be introduced at an early date.

73. Mr. RANKIN

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that sugar-beet products are brought from Lincolnshire to London for refining purposes in foreign instead of British coastal vessels; and whether, in view of the fact that the taxpayer is subsidising the sugar-beet industry, he will make representations to the firms concerned to employ British coasting vessels and not foreign?


I was not aware of the circumstances referred to by my hon. Friend, but if he will be good enough to furnish me with particulars, I will certainly look into the matter?
