§ 50. Sir Adrian Baillie
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, in view of the reduction in the import duties on foreign apples imported into this country which will result from the operation of the Anglo-American Trade Agreement, he proposes to take any action to devise new measures of assistance to British apple-growers in order to counterbalance any harmful effect which may result to them from the increased imports of foreign apples?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
The bulk of the imports of foreign apples come from the United States of America, and, as indicated in my reply to my hon. Friend the Member for South-West Norfolk (Mr. De Chair) on 24th November, I do not anticipate that the forthcoming reduction in duties on foreign apples will have any appreciable effect on the position of English apple growers.
