§ 52. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Food if he will state, by countries, the number of turkeys he has actually bought, to the latest available date, and the price paid for them delivered in Britain.
§ Mr. Strachey
Since Christmas, 1946, we have received 900 tons from Hungary, 576 tons from South America, 128 tons from Yugoslavia, three tons from Poland and two tons from Australia. No other purchases have been completed. As usual, it would be undesirable to publish prices.
62. Lieut.-Commander Hutchison
asked the Minister of Food if he will make a further statement in regard to the proposed purchase of turkeys from the U.S.A.
