HC Deb 15 June 1955 vol 542 c16W
Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food the prospects of the potato crop; and how far it is anticipated that a shortage will be avoided.

Mr. Amory

The yield of the first earlies is expected to be satisfactory and, as harvesting progresses, increasing supplies should be available. It is not yet possible to give any indication of the prospects for the main crop.
