§ Captain Kerby
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food for what particular experiments he authorised the Agricutural Marketing Development Executive Committee to make a grant of £100,000 to the Potato Marketing Board.
§ Mr. Scott-Hopkins
Investigations and experiments in potato storage, both in bulk and in separate lots, and in the handling, grading and packaging of potatoes; trial sales of specially packed or prepared potatoes in retail, wholesale and industrial markets; and research into different types of consumer demand in different markets by means of test samples.
The experiments as a whole are designed to find out which are the right potatoes for each market and to find the best use for all potatoes.
