HC Deb 22 April 1955 vol 540 c23W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will replace the extra fancy and fancy grades for apples by fancy and choice grades, as recommended by the Fruit Growers Association of Kent.

Mr. Amory:

The extra fancy and fancy grades for apples are national grades recommended by the Ministry on the advice of a Committee which includes representatives of national associations of growers, wholesalers and retailers. If one of these associations proposes that changes in these grades should be made, I am prepared to ask the Advisory Committee to consider the proposals.
