Sir J. Gilmour

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what acreage of sugar beet has this season been sown in the Cupar factory area.

Mr. Buchan

No final figure is as yet available for the sown acreage, but 9,017 acres are under contract which is an increase of one-third over last year's total.
