HC Deb 23 April 1947 vol 436 c1031
49. Mr. Beswick

asked the Minister at Food the price secured by growers, wholesalers and retailers, respectively, for any date during February, for cabbages. cauliflowers and parsnips.

Mr. Strachey

I cannot give my hon. Friend the information in exactly the form in which he asks for it, because of complication as to quality and wide differences in price from place to place. I am sending him a full summary of the weekly reports which I receive on the matter.

Mr. Scollan

Is the Minister aware that in some parts of the Clyde Valley there are fields full of turnips, which people cannot buy in the shops and which the farmers will not lift?

Dr. Haden Guest

May I ask the Minister to make the information which he is to supply to my hon. Friend available in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Strachey

Yes, Sir, if that is required.
