HC Deb 16 November 1939 vol 353 c840W
Mr. Walkden

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what steps he is taking to reserve an adequate supply of potatoes of suitable size for seed purposes, in view of the enormous increase in the number of allotment workers, and the need for providing them with an abundance of sound reliable seed at reasonable prices?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

This matter is under consideration by the Ministry of Food, and it is hoped to make a statement on it shortly.
