HC Deb 06 April 1950 vol 473 c206W
Mr. Granville

asked the Minister of Food if he will consider the erection of a sugar beet factory in north-east Suffolk to meet the growing demand for such facilities, in view of the heavy drain on transport now required to cart the beet long distances.

Mr. Webb

Looking at the sugar beet industry as a whole, I do not think that the transport difficulties in north-east Suffolk warrant the erection of a new factory there.
