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.
