§ Sir I. Albery
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can give any more precise information to farmers largely interested in fruit-growing as to what the position is likely to be with regard to sugar for preserving purposes?
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
Arrangements are being made for the allocation of sugar for preserving purposes to jam manufacturers, fruit canners and also to persons who wish to preserve soft or stone fruit grown in their own gardens or allotments. The position will be reviewed at a later date when the effect of these arrangements can be gauged.
