§ 19. Mr. Walters
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what steps he is taking to ensure an adequate supply of potatoes for 1977–78.
§ Mr. Bishop
The target area for potatoes has been set at a level which, given normal weather conditions, should provide sufficient potatoes to meet our requirements. Plantings have been delayed in some areas because of wet ground conditions but I expect the target area to be achieved.
