§ 24. Mr. Shepherd
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what percentage of apples and pears for home consumption and for manufacturing purposes, respectively, is produced by domestic growers.
§ Mr. Strang
I regret that information in the form requested is not available. However, in the crop year 1974–75 commercial growers in the United Kingdom produced around 56 per cent. of our supplies of apples and 48 per cent. of our supplies of pears.
