HC Deb 18 November 1946 vol 430 c21W
38. Lieut.-Colonel Kingsmill

asked the Minister of Food whether he will consider the re-establishment of graded English apples, in view of the high-class packaging of dates, figs, etc., being imported from abroad.

Mr. Strachey

My right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture and I are most anxious to see a return to a higher standard of grading of apples as soon as conditions permit, and our Departments are in consultation regarding the future grading and marketing of fruit in this country.
