89. Mr. De la Bère
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the fact that there is no research station in the country to deal with vegetables only, the Government are prepared to consider setting up a research station for this purpose, in connection with the cultivation of better varieties of vegetables and the control of disease?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
The horticultural research station attached to the University of Cambridge is mainly concerned with vegetables. The question of extending the provision for vegetable research is at present under consideration by the Agricultural Research Council, my Department and the Scottish Department of Agriculture.
Mr. De la Bère
Are not the right hon. Gentleman and the whole House aware that the very best vegetables in the world are grown in the Vale of Evesham?
