§ Sir J. Gilmour
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether, in view of the increased acreage of oats in Great Britain and higher yields per acre, he will take steps to limit further imports of oats.
§ Mr. John Mackie:
No. Imports of oats during the first four months of the 314W current crop year amounted to only 2,290 tons, consisting mainly of special high quality oats for racehorses. This quantity is negligible in relation to this year's home crop which is estimated at over 1.3 million tons.
