HC Deb 06 April 1955 vol 539 c106W
Mr. P. Wells

asked the Minister of Agriculture what progress has been made in research work on the trace element problem carried out in Romney Marsh in regard to peas; and if he will publish results as soon as possible.

Mr. Amory

The National Agricultural Advisory Service, in co-operation with the Soil Survey of England and Wales, is continuing investigations on trace element deficiencies in Romney Marsh so as to bring to a conclusion earlier research on this subject. When results are available they will be published, but it is likely that the experiments will have to go on for several years.
