§ 28. Lord APSLEY
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can give any statistics showing the amount of British cider which is made from British apples as compared with the amount made in this country from imported apples and imported unfermented apple juice?
§ The MINISTER of AGRICULTURE (Major Elliot)
I regret I am unable to give the statistics asked for by my Noble Friend.
§ Major COLFOX
Can the right hon. and gallant Gentleman tell us from what part of England the cider apples come which were awarded the prize at the recent Brewers' Exhibition?
§ Lord APSLEY
May I ask whether the right hon. and gallant Gentleman will make an effort to get these statistics?
§ Major ELLIOT
I am willing to discuss the matter with my Noble Friend, but it is very difficult to collect the statistics which he desires.
