HC Deb 05 March 1931 vol 249 c621W

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will appoint a committee of inquiry into the conditions of the sugar-beet industry, and the operation of the subsidy in its effect on prices paid by the factories to the grower?


I see no necessity at the present time for the appointment of the committee of inquiry suggested. I may add that a comprehensive report on the sugar-beet industry will shortly be issued by the Ministry as one of its Economic Series of publications.
