HC Deb 25 February 1970 vol 796 c340W
87. Mr. John Wells

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what statistical information his Department maintains about the productive capacity of the food pre-packaging industry with particular reference to British horticultural products.

Mr. Hoy

A wide variety of concerns from growers to retailers engage in various kinds of pre-packing of fresh produce and the Department has not so far considered it necessary to obtain from them comprehensive returns of their productive capacity.
