HC Deb 29 January 1951 vol 483 c73W
138. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Minister of Food what is the result of the review, made after May, 1950, of the difference between his Department's buying and selling prices for soya bean of£30 and£59, respectively.

Mr. Webb

As the hon. Member was informed in answer to a Question on 8th May last year,£30 per ton should not be regarded as representative of our buying prices for soya beans. He will, however, be glad to know that the price at which these beans are sold to manufacturers was reduced to£45 per ton on 5th November last.
