§ 69. Mr. P. Wells
asked the Minister of Supply if he will increase the supply of wire to hop growers who are finding it impossible to maintain existing acreage on existing allocations.
§ Mr. G. R. Strauss
Distribution of galvanised wire of the type used by hop6W growers is not controlled by the Government. I understand, however, that despite the shortage of zinc, the principal manufacturers expect that deliveries to hop growers will be maintained at last year's level.
