HC Deb 20 April 1950 vol 474 c40W
82. Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Food if he has considered details, which have been sent to him, about the difficulties of the Cornish potato growers owing to excessive imports; and if he will make a statement.

83. Mr. G. Williams

asked the Minister of Food if, in view of the fact that imports of early potatoes will be allowed up to 1st June, he is satisfied that the home crop will find a market.

Mr. Webb

I do not think that the imports which we are allowing up to 31st May will be more than we need, or will make it difficult for Cornish and other growers to sell their new potatoes.
