HC Deb 31 January 1949 vol 460 c193W
27. Mr. Scott-Elliot

asked the Minister of Food what is the estimated amount of the Burma rice crop for the present season which he expects to procure; and how this compares with last year.

Dr. Summerskill

The Burmese authorities expect that 1,250,000 tons of rice will be available for export from Burma during 1949. This compares with 1,226,553 tons exported during 1948.
