According to my Department's information, 2,676 tons of tomatoes were imported from Holland between 3rd June and 15th June. I cannot give the information asked for in the second part of the Question. Tomatoes are imported by the private trade and I cannot, therefore, estimate the total tonnage likely to be imported this year.
Precise figures are not available but my Department's estimate is that during the first half of June some 10,000 tons were marketed, including supplies received from the Channel Islands. At this time of the year homegrown supplies at reasonable prices are not sufficient to meet the demand and limited imports are, therefore, being allowed from abroad.
