§ 38. Mr. Turton
asked the Minister of Food what quantity of hand-picked homegrown peas of the 1949 crop he still holds unsold; what quantity of the New Zealand and Tasmanian blue peas of the 1948 and 1949 crops, respectively, he 879 still holds unsold; what allowance he is now offering to buyers in respect of peas released in London and consigned to the Liverpool or Glasgow port areas; and what is the amount he pays British Railways for the carriage of the said peas from London to Liverpool.
§ Mr. Webb
About 5,000 tons bought to implement the guarantee to home growers, and about half this quantity of New Zealand peas. No allowance is being offered to buyers in respect of peas released in London and sent elsewhere. The peas are being sold on the basis that the buyer pays transport from the store and the last part of the Question does not therefore, arise.
