HC Deb 09 October 1946 vol 427 c58W
61. Mr. Rees - Williams

asked the Minister of Food whether he will continue to buy all marketable bananas in the Jamaican banana crop after 31st December, 1946; and, if so, for what period.

Mr. Strachey

Negotiations for future supplies of bananas from Jamaica are now taking place. The limitation has been shipping. But that is improving and I have little doubt that we shall come to a satisfactory arrangement.
