§ 64. Mr. Foot
asked the Minister of Agriculture what would be the annual cost of maintaining the Ellbridge Horticultural Station; whether he is aware of the view of the Tamar Valley growers that the transfer of the centre's work to Camborne would greatly reduce the value of the service; and whether he will consider maintaining the centre on the same basis as it exists today.141W
§ Sir T. Dugdale
The average net annual cost of maintaining the Ellbridge Horticultural Station has been about £940. I am fully aware of the special problems of the growers in the Tamar Valley, and that is why I am considering the retention of the Station.
