§ 50. Captain McEwen
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food why a distinction is drawn, in the regulations affecting the distribution of fruit, between the counties of Northumberland and Berwick, unfavourable to Berwickshire?
Major Lloyd George
No unfavourable distinction is drawn between the counties of Northumberland and Berwickshire in the arrangements for the distribution of imported fruit. The latter county and the borough of Berwick draw supplies from 1524 Glasgow. The rest of the county of Northumberland is supplied from Newcastle.
