§ 55. Lieut.-Colonel Corbett
asked the Minister of Food what proportion of the potato crop he anticipates will be lost from blight and rot due to the bad season; and whether he will give an assurance that no rationing will be necessary.
§ Dr. Edith Summerskill
It is not yet possible to say what the total loss from blight will be this year, but from preliminary reports, that it should not be so serious as to make the rationing of potatoes necessary.
