HC Deb 27 January 1954 vol 522 cc240-1W
90. Mr. Dudley Williams

asked the Minister of Food if he will make a statement on the offer that has been made by Californian growers to sell 2,000,000 cases of surplus cling peaches to this country.

Major Lloyd George

My Department has received a number of offers of Californian canned peaches from the trade. The United States Government has also suggested that canned peaches and other fruits should be included among imports to be financed under the Mutual Security Act. The whole matter is under examination, but I am not in a position to make any further statement at present.
