§ 70. Mr. H. HOPE
asked the Minister of Food whether Scotland is getting a share of the German order for potatoes; and, if so, how many tons are to be exported to Germany, and at what price?
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, the total quantity of potatoes to be shipped to Germany and the price at which they are to be sold have not yet been definitely fixed.
§ Lieutenant-Colonel A. C. MURRAY
Will the right hon. Gentleman arrange, as far as possible, that an equal quantity of potatoes shall be taken from each of the potato-growing districts in Scotland, so that one potato-growing area in Scotland shall not suffer as distinguished from another?
§ Lieutenant-Colonel WHELER
Will the right hon. Gentleman also consider the interests of the English potato growers in this question?
