HC Deb 08 November 1950 vol 480 c57W
66. Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Food what he has decided to do to assist Kentish farmers and smallholders whose crops of cauliflowers and lettuces are now being crowded out of the market by imported vegetables.

Mr. F. Willey

The arrangements for controlling imports of cauliflower, lettuce and other vegetable, which have been agreed with the Agricultural Departments after consultation with the growers' organisations, are especially designed to give growers ample opportunity to market their produce during the main season of home production.
