§ Mr. Bossom
asked the Minister of Agriculture what is his policy with regard to the use of guaranteed prices for the encouragement of increases in agricultural and horticultural production.
Mr. T. Williams
The Government's policy in this matter is embodied in Part I of the Agriculture Act, 1947, which provides for guaranteed prices and assured markets for the major agricultural products as set out in the First Schedule to the Act. It has not been found practicable to include horticultural produce within this guaranteed price system.
