HC Deb 03 June 1946 vol 423 cc1614-5
Mr. R. S. Hudson (by Private Notice)

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he has any statement to make regarding the Government's new target for additional acreage of cereals for the 1947 harvest.

Mr. T. Williams

Yes, Sir. The figure of 2,500,000 acres applies to the wheat target which, as already announced, is being set for 1947. This acreage is not additional, and the Minister of Food has asked me to associate him with this correction to his statement in last Friday's Debate from which certain misapprehensions have evidently arisen.
