§ 49. Sir G. Harvie-Watt
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has taken steps to help fruit growers in having their perishable crops transported to markets in the north in time for morning sales and so avoid deterioration and waste.
Mr. T. Williams
The transport of perishable crops is a matter for arrangement between the fruit growers and the transport agencies concerned, but I should be willing to look into any special difficulties if the hon. and learned Member will supply me with particulars.
§ Sir G. Harvie-Watt
Is there any prospect of getting back to the pre-war system of running special trains from 1471 the growing districts to convey the crops to cities in the north like Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow?
