asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that, under the provisions of the Food (Home Grown Onions) Order, No. 763 of 1943, persons who do not cultivate for sale are exempt under paragraph 2, but, under paragraph 3 (2) are required to notify their onions to the Minister; and whether he will take steps to amend the Order so as to remove the ambiguity?

As there is no ambiguity in this Order, and as Article 2 does not exempt persons who do not cultivate for sale, the question of amending this Order does not arise.
