asked the Minister of Agriculture what proportion of the grant set apart for the improvement of marketing of agricultural produce will be allocated for advertising next season's home-grown fruit and vegetables and specify the commodities which it is proposed to advertise?

The purposes for which the grant made to my Department by the Empire Marketing Board is used were set out in a reply given to the hon. Member for Eye (Mr. Granville) on 14th November last, of which I am sending the hon. and gallant Member a copy. A considerable amount of direct advertising of home produce is conducted by the Empire Marketing Board from its own resources, and no allocation for this purpose is made from the grant to my Department.
