HC Deb 14 December 1939 vol 355 cc1260-1
51. Mr. R. Morgan

asked the Miʼnister of Agriiulture what was the cost of the tour of the eight girls which the Potato Board sent on tour last summer; and whether the board regards the experiment as having been a success and that the outlay was justified?

Sir W. Womersley

My right hon. and gallant Friend is informed by the Potato Marketing Board that the cost of the tour referred to was £1,000. The answers to the other parts of the question are in the affirmative.
