§ 54. Mr. Mathers
asked the Minister of Agriculture what steps are being taken to protect this year's Kent apple crop; and whether sufficient spraying facilities will be provided?
The programme of spraying by fruit growers for the 1942 crop is on a larger scale than usual. I am hoping also to arrange for spraying machines to be available for use by the War Agricultural Executive Committee of Kent. The supply of spraying material is adequate to enable the programme to be carried out.
