HC Deb 03 May 1965 vol 711 cc127-8W
Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what factors in addition to the cash return from the sugar factory, are taken into account in assessing the profitability of beet-growing in Scotland.

Mr. William Ross

Gross returns for sugar beet are usually taken as the cash payment for beet plus an allowance for the value of beet tops used for feeding. In assessing costs full account is taken of all normal production and overhead costs.
