HC Deb 06 April 1943 vol 388 c509W
Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he has considered the representations now made to him by the Scottish Farmers' Union on the subject of sugar-beet prices; and what steps he is taking thereupon?

Mr. Johnston

I have gone fully into this question in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Food, but it is regretted that it is impracticable to amend the Scottish price without reopening the whole question of sugar-beet prices in England and Wales.
