HC Deb 28 July 1954 vol 531 c45W
27. Lieut.-Colonel Schofield

asked the Minister of Food in view of the fact that only negligible amounts of citrus fruit are available from Colonial Territories during the period May to October in the current year during which import licences for the import of United States citrus fruit have been made available, to what extent larger amounts of such fruit are likely to be available from the Colonial Territories in future seasons during that period.

Dr. Hill

Owing to the seasonal nature of the crops no appreciable increase is expected in the near future during the period in question.
