§ Captain P. MACDONALD
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is yet in a position to state on what lines the Government intend to proceed with regard to the Report of the Greene Committee on the British sugar-beet industry; and whether he can make any statement which will give some assurance to British farmers who have been regularly engaged in raising this crop?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply I gave on 4th April to a similar question by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for the Howdenshire Division (Major Carver) of which I am sending him a copy.
