HC Deb 30 April 1956 vol 552 cc2-3W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food to make a special appeal for increased production by the horticultural industry to help the country's economic position.

Mr. Amory

I am satisfied that the horticultural industry is vigorously striving for increased production and efficiency. In spite of the difficulties due to the bad weather early this year, I have no reason to doubt that their efforts are meeting with a considerable measure of success, and I doubt whether any special appeal is required.
