HC Deb 29 September 1942 vol 383 cc682-3W
Colonel Carver

asked the Minister of Agriculture what increase per cent. has this year been obtained by farmers with the harvest; and what percentage of saving in shipping this represents?

Mr. Hudson

I regret that I am unable to give precise figures, but I can assure my hon. and gallant Friend that the estimated results of the present harvest hold out hope of a substantial saving in shipping.
