§ Mr. Walkden
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the largely increased number of allotment workers and others who will need supplies of seed potatoes early next year, he is arranging for adequate reserves to be set aside and controlled by the Ministry in order that all requirements may be met with reliable seed at reasonable prices?
§ Sir R. Dorman-Smith
I fully appreciate the need for ensuring adequate supplies of seed potatoes for planting next year and I am in close touch with my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster with a view to making the necessary arrangements.
