§ Sir H. LUCAS-TOOTH
asked the Secretary of State for Air whether all the potatoes, other vegetables, and fruit served to the Air Force are grown in this country; and, if not, whether he can estimate what proportion of them is home-grown?
§ Sir S. HOARE
Practically all the potatoes, vegetables and fruit consumed by Air Force units at home are homegrown, the main exceptions being those kinds of fruit which cannot be obtained in this country. The home-grown proportion 589W of the whole would be very greatly preponderant, bur I cannot give an exact percentage.
