HC Deb 29 May 1946 vol 423 c189W
64. Mr. G. Jeger

asked the Minister of Food whether he took into account, when fixing the growers' price of strawberries, the fact that the season is late; and if he will adjust the price drop periods accordingly.

Mr. Strachey

Growers' prices for strawberries have to be fixed according to the average date of the maturity of the crop before it is known whether the season will be late or early. I am satisfied that the prices fixed this year will give a reasonable return to the growers.
