Mr. De la Bère
asked the Minister of Food whether, so as to enable English canners to make plans and preparations for the coming season in connection with the supply of a larger quantity of all varieties of fruit for next season, he will take steps to clear out the present stocks, to enable the factories to prepare for cans and supplies of fruit for the future.
§ Dr. Summerskill
Yes, Sir. I have already taken steps to clear the stocks of canned fruits and if storage difficulties exist I shall be pleased to have them investigated.
