Colonel Carver

asked the Minister of Food what steps are taken by his Department in fixing prices for vegetables to ensure that the remuneration of the producer is adequate in these days of high labour and transport cost.

Colonel Llewellin

The maximum prices payable to growers for vegetables under Statutory Orders are prescribed seasonally in consultation with the Agricultural Departments and after discussion of all the relevant factors with the growers' organisations concerned.
