HC Deb 24 February 1964 vol 690 cc8-9W
67. Mr. Brewis

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he will seek an agreement with the Governments of Cyprus and Malta to secure the phased marketing of early potato imports in June and July.

Mr. Scott-Hopkins

We shall keep in touch with the Cyprus Government about the prospects for the season; and commercial factors themselves should encourage growers there to send us potatoes when they are most required. Imports of early potatoes from Malta are small and mostly arrive in.May.
