HC Deb 22 June 1953 vol 516 c121W
108. Mrs. Castle

asked the Minister of Food what quantity of English new potatoes he estimates were marketed weekly during the six weeks commencing 4th May; and what was the average retail price of new potatoes for each of these weeks.

Major Lloyd George

New potatoes are not controlled and I do not receive returns of the weekly quantity marketed. Market returns show that prices quoted during the period have ranged between 6d. and 1s. a lb.
