HC Deb 07 April 1952 vol 498 c2258
2. Mr. Fitzroy Maclean

asked the Minister of Food what steps he is taking to improve the supply of dried prunes.

Major Lloyd George

We have recently bought 6,000 tons of Yugoslav dried prunes. These are now arriving, and I hope to release them for retail distribution in May.

Mr. Maclean

Has my right hon. and gallant Friend given attention to the possibility of producing dried prunes in this country?
