HC Deb 19 May 1977 vol 932 cc222-3W
16. Mr. Wiggin

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what is the uptake of A and B quotas for this year's sugar beet crop.

Mr. Bishop

I cannot at present add anything to the reply I gave to the hon. Member on 21st April, when I said that the British Sugar Corporation's estimate of production in 1977 is around a million metric tons of white sugar, which is the United Kingdom's basic, or A, quota.
