asked the Minister of Food how many licences have been issued for the construction in this country of quick-freezing plants for fruit and vegetables in the last 12 months; what is the location and capacity of the units; and what progress has been made in their construction.

Two licences have been issued for the erection or conversion of buildings for quick-freezing plant in the Home Counties and one in the Eastern Counties during the last 12 months. I cannot at the moment give the information about the capacity of these plants or the progress which has been made in their construction, but I will write to the hon. Member in due course.
