§ 81. Major Legge-Bourke
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many applications have been received in the last six months by his Department for permission to export potatoes from the Wash ports to Spain; and how many were granted and rejected, respectively.215W
§ Mr. Bottomley
Fifteen applications to export potatoes to Spain have been received by my Department in the last six months. All were for seed potatoes and all were granted. I am unable to give separate figures for the Wash ports. No applications to export culinary (i.e. ware) potatoes to Spain have been received by my Department during that period.
