HC Deb 21 June 1976 vol 913 cc348-9W
Mr. John Evans

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will conduct a feasibility study on the desirability of growing beet sugar in the North-West Region of England.

Mr. Bishop

My Department has been consulted about the terms of a survey being undertaken by independent agricultural consultants into the possibilities of growing sugar beet in the North-West Region. The result of this survey will be made available to us and a separate feasibility study by my Department is therefore unnecessary.
