HC Deb 14 December 1950 vol 482 cc186-7W
57. Mr. Lambert

asked the Minister of Agriculture if he can give an estimate of how many tons of cider apples will not find purchasers in Devonshire this year.

Mr. T. Williams

The 1950 crop of cider apples was very heavy and much in excess of requirements. It is estimated that about 20,000 tons will not be sold in Devon this year.
