§ Mr. RONALD McNEILL
asked the Minister of Food whether there is now in this country a supply of home-grown hops sufficient for requirements until next year's harvest; and what quantity of imported hops is also in the country?
Sir A. BOSCAWEN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. Accurate information as to the quantity of imported hops in this country is not available, but it is estimated that there is about 6 months' supply.
