Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the present position is chaotic; that, whatever recommendations were given to the Ministry, many of the growers, under the present price, are faced with serious loss, and some with ruin; that there are tons of strawberries waiting to be picked; and that some decision must be made to-day? Otherwise, much of the crop will be lost. If growers sell their crops, they may be breaking the law, without knowing it.
