asked the Minister of Agriculture if he will consider holding a fruit census this year rather than in 1950.

I regret that it will not be possible to undertake a comprehensive fruit census until March, 1951, at the earliest. Returns of acreages under fruit are collected annually and other more urgent inquiries before that date will fully absorb the resources of my statistical department.
