§ 53. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Minister of Agriculture the approximate acreage of unharvested root crops and the estimate of food thus entirely lost?
I have no precise statistics, but I have no reason to think that any appreciable loss of food is occurring through root crops remaining unharvested.
§ Mr. Sorensen
Will the right hon. Gentleman agree that there are instances in the country where root crops have been unharvested, and is he making any report as to the acreage which has not been harvested?
There is still time to harvest roots. The harvest is often regarded as only the corn harvest, but it extends to roots, and they can be lifted up to the end of the year.
