§ 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.
