asked the Minister of Food in what circumstances he is refusing to pay farmers for potatoes held by them on his behalf which, owing to delays in collection, have gone bad?

The only circumstances in which payment is withheld are when the grower is considered not to have carried out the conditions of his contract. If my hon. Friend has any particular case in mind and will supply me with particulars I will gladly have them investigated.
