HC Deb 14 May 1956 vol 552 c139W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will give consideration to issuing a warning with regard to the danger of overcropping with peas, which might lead to further outbreaks of potato root eelworm.

Mr. Amory

I am advised that there is a real danger that frequent cropping with peas will lead to the spread of pea root eelworm and I hope to arrange consultations with the industry in the near future.
