HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 cc199-200W
148. Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will facilitate the importation from France of lucerne seed, particularly the Du Puits strain, which farmers in the southern counties need for planting this spring.

Mr. G. Brown

The Seeds Import Board are negotiating for a supply of lucerne seed from France for distribution through the ordinary trade channels. I am informed that the Du Puits strain is very scarce.
