asked the Minister of Food which branch of his Department is responsible for the manufacture of returnable and non-returnable horticultural containers.

My Department is not responsible directly for the manufacture of horticultural containers. So far as wooden containers are concerned licences to acquire timber are issued to users, who then make their own arrangements for the production of the containers. Licences for the manufacture of cardboard containers are issued to container manufacturers by the Paper Control by agreement with this Ministry.
