Viscountess ASTOR

asked the Minister of Agriculture what was the total estimated number of hop growers in 1932 and 1933, respectively?


I regret I am unable to give the figures for the total number of hop growers. The following information supplied by the Hops Marketing Board may, however, he helpful. The number of hop growers registered with the board on 2nd October, 1932, was 1,072. The number on 17th November, 1933, was 1,042.
