HC Deb 10 July 1946 vol 425 c101W
Mr. Eccles

asked the Minister of Agriculture how much the acreage of potatoes planted this year exceeds or falls short of the acreage planted in 1945.

Mr. T. Williams

Pending the tabulation of the results of the Agricultural Census of 4th June last, figures for the acreage of potatoes sown this year are not available. The 1946 acreage, however, will probably be much the same as in 1945.
