§ Colonel Carver
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he will reconsider the reduction in the allocation of sugar-beet pulp to growers who are stock-keepers, since otherwise the latter will have to grow alternatives, thus resulting in a reduction of the sugar-beet acreage?
The allocation of sugar-beet pulp to growers in the 1941 contract remains at the same rate of 1½ cwts. of each ton of beet delivered as was in force last season. I have no evidence that contracting for the growing of sugar-beet, which on the whole is satisfactory, has been affected as suggested in the latter part of the Question.
