HC Deb 26 January 1948 vol 446 c86W
63. Mr. Joynson-Hicks

asked the Minister of Agriculture how much sugar beet had been removed and how much still awaited removal from West Sussex on 31st December, 1947; and what plans he has to ensure more prompt removal of next season's crop.

Mr. T. Williams

Thirty thousand tons of sugar beet were removed from West Sussex by 31st December, 1947. The remaining 500 tons were moved between 31st December and 3rd January. The sugar beet contract provides for equal monthly deliveries of beet during the processing season, and no special action on my part appears to be needed.
