HC Deb 26 May 1952 vol 501 cc94-5W
51. Mr. Bullard

asked the Minister of Food whether he will consider making arrangements to use the drying capacity in one or more of the factories of the British Sugar Corporation in order to convert into animal feeding stuff the surplus of ware potatoes still remaining on the farms.

Major Lloyd George

Essential maintenance and reconstruction work is being carried out at the factories in readiness for next season's sugar-beet campaign. None can, therefore, be made available for this purpose.
