HC Deb 26 February 1914 vol 58 c1960W

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.


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.
