§ Mr. MACKINDER
asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether a sum of £11,000 has been allocated from the Development Fund to afford assistance to the Cantley Beet Sugar Factory.
§ Mr. MONTAGU
No advance from the Development Fund has been promised to the owners of the Cantley Sugar Beet Factory or for their assistance. A non-recurrent Grant of £11,000 has been promised to a separate body called the Sugar Beet Growers' Society, Limited, registered under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act as an association not trading for profit, as a Grant towards the cost of organising farmers in the Cantley neighbourhood and instructing them in the growth of sugar beet and towards the expenses of special book-keeping work to be undertaken for the Development Commissioners.
