HC Deb 06 March 1947 vol 434 c88W
69. Mr. Gooch

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware that thousands of young tomato plants in commercial glasshouses in Norfolk and other counties may be lost as a result of the fuel shortage; and if he will arrange for further supplies of fuel to be made available to growers without delay.

Mr. Shinwell

I have not been informed of any fuel shortage for commercial glasshouses in Norfolk or other counties. The average stock held by growers in the Eastern Region including Norfolk is satisfactory, but if my hon. Friend has knowledge of any particular case of difficulty and will let me have details, I will look into it.
