HC Deb 28 January 1954 vol 522 cc266-7W
86. Mr. Hayman

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will state by counties, or the smallest regional units possible, the production of sugar beet for the latest convenient period.

Sir T. Dugdale

The latest estimate of the 1953–54 crop in England and Wales is 5,101,000 tons, and in Scotland 125,000 tons. These estimates cannot be broken down in terms of production by counties or regions, but I am sending to the hon. Member a copy of a statement of the acerage grown by counties as shown by the 4th June agricultural returns.
