HC Deb 09 July 1968 vol 768 c50W
Mr. G. Campbell

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will advance the date up to which Cyprus potatoes may enter Great Britain, or otherwise further restrict their entry, in order to avoid a repetition of the difficulties experienced this year over supplies and prices of new potatoes.

Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

No. As I explained in my reply of 26th June to the hon. Member for North Angus and Mearns (Mr. Buchanan-Smith), imports have not been the main cause of the difficulties of early potato growers this year.—[Vol. 767, c.80.]
