asked the Minister of Food whether transport and labour in sufficient quantity will be made available this year for the collection and distribution of soft fruit from the countryside, so that the public can purchase such fruit at reasonable prices and without queueing and with a view to eliminating waste.

Unless the season proves to be very abnormal, I have no reason to expect any special transport and labour difficulties this year and if there are any which have come to my hon. Friend's notice and he will let me know what they are, I will gladly look into them
