HC Deb 24 May 1954 vol 528 c3
6. Mr. Godber

asked the Minister of Food what proportion of the 1953 crop of home-grown barley which he has received or expects to receive has now been sold.

Major Lloyd George

By 20th May, about 80 per cent.

Mr. Godber

Does my right hon. and gallant Friend feel confident that he will have disposed of the whole of it before this year's harvest?

Major Lloyd George

The disposal of stocks is proceeding very satisfactorily, and I hope they will be entirely cleared before the next harvest.
