asked the Minister of Food if he is aware of the shortage of potatoes in the Macclesfield and Congleton area; and if his officers will consult the wholesalers in this area with a view to improving distribution.

Dr. Summerskill

I am sorry that weather conditions have caused shortages of potatoes in this and other areas. My Department is doing everything possible to increase supplies and will gladly consider any suggestions made by traders.
