46. Mr. J. E. B. Hill
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food in what commodities and in what amount he 1055 estimates there is scope for replacing imports by increased home production.
§ Mr. Dance
Whilst we all recognise that this is a trading country, may I ask whether the right hon. Gentleman would agree that agriculture should be encouraged to increase its production by 10 per cent. to 20 per cent.? Is he not further aware that there are countries, particularly in Europe, which send to us in agricultural exports more than they take from us in other imports?
