asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he will give the number of potato factories now completed and in operation in Northern Ireland; the number in course of erection; and whether these factories will be in working order in time to deal with the remainder of the 1942 crop in the centres where they are placed?

Five potato factories are now operating in Northern Ireland. Four are in the course of erection. As far as can be foreseen, however, potato processing capacity in Northern Ireland is sufficient to deal with any surplus from the 1942 crop.
