HC Deb 24 September 1948 vol 456 c188W
Mr. Sparks

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will make a statement upon the yield of main arable crops grown and harvested this year, giving comparable figures for 1938.

Mr. T. Williams

The following table shows the yield of the principal corn and root crops in 1938 and corresponding forecasts for 1948 so far as at present available. It is too early to give reliable forecasts of this year's root crops, but the indications are that yields per acre will be rather higher than in 1938.

extends to those who before that day entered into a binding contract to buy but to whom the land was not conveyed before that date.

Mr. Silkin
