As old potatoes are still finding a steady market for human consumption, it is not yet possible to answer the first and third parts of the Question. With regard to the second part of the Question, the price payable for potatoes delivered under contract in July is the appropriate fixed grower's price for May, which varies with district and variety, plus 20s. per ton.
Has not the hon. Gentleman heard from Norfolk and Lincolnshire of thousands of tons of potatoes that are being wasted? In view of the fact that a member of the public can be prosecuted for wasting a piece of paper or bread, why are not the officials responsible for this maladministration prosecuted, or shot?
