HC Deb 10 May 1948 vol 450 c168W
32. Mr. Erroll

asked the Minister of Food what price he is currently paying for groundnuts from British West Africa; and how this compares with world prices.

Mr. Strachey

The current landed price of British West African groundnuts, as will appear from the Board of Trade returns, is £45 per ton C. and F. The only other groundnuts which we buy come from East Africa and India. The East African price is about the same, and the Indian price, for a small quantity, is higher.
