HC Deb 11 November 1952 vol 507 c18W
56. Lady Tweedsmuir

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland why certified Svalof original seed is the only Swedish seed admitted to the oats certification scheme of his Department.

Mr. Snadden

Only seed raised and supplied by the original breeder is accepted as authentic foundation seed for the purpose of the Department's scheme. The Svalof Plant Breeding Station are the original breeders of the Swedish oat varieties included in the scheme and accordingly only stocks raised by them and certified as Svalof original seed are accepted into the scheme.
