HC Deb 03 August 1962 vol 664 c163W
Mr. R. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, whether he is aware of the difficulties of growers using glasshouses, particularly around London where production is becoming uneconomic; and what action he is taking to assist them.

Mr. Soames

I am aware that some districts around London and comparable areas elsewhere are becoming unsuitable for glasshouse production. I have asked my right hon. Friend, the Minister of Housing and Local Government, to consider particularly in the context of the survey of development needs in South-East England which he is making, whether the development of such land for other purposes might, in appropriate cases, be desirable.
