HC Deb 06 February 1941 vol 368 cc1074-5
46. Mr. Parker

asked the Minister of Agriculture what was the total production of wheat, oats, barley and potatoes in 1939 and 1940, respectively, compared with the average of the preceding ten years?

The Minister of Agriculture (Mr. R. S. Hudson)

It would not be in the national interest to disclose statistics for 1940. The production of corn and potatoes last year was, however, substantially greater than it was before the war.
