HC Deb 23 October 1946 vol 427 cc363-4W
63. Colonel Gomme-Duncan

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that the prices fixed for the 1946 raspberry crop in Scotland are such as to endanger the livelihood of smallholders engaged in this industry; and what steps he proposes to take.

Mr. Strachey

I cannot accept the hon. Member's statement, but my attention has already been called to the apprehensions of raspberry growers in Scotland, and the whole question will be fully examined when maximum prices for the 1947 season are being considered.
