§ Mr. WADDINGTON
asked the Minister of Food what is the reason for restricting the number of wholesale potato dealers in any area; and whether he will revoke the order and allow free dealings, as many of the retailers consider potato prices will thereby be reduced?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
Although wholesale dealers in potatoes have to be registered in accordance with the terms of the Potatoes. Order, 1919, no restrictions are placed on the number of wholesale potato dealers in any area. The question of revoking the Order is under consideration.
