GROWERS SHOULD GET £40 A TON FOR POTATOES C.P. Member's Plea In Assembly [Newspaper Article] — Boorowa News — 25 May 1951
GROWERS SHOULD GET £40 A TON FOR POTATOES C.P. Member's Plea In Assembly The decline in the potato growing industry, because of inadequate returns to grow ers, was referred to in the Legislative Assembly as a. matter of urgency by Mr. Davis Hughes (C.P., Arini dale). To get full reduction, he said, £40 a ton to the grow er in New South Wales was the minimum acceptable re turn, based soundly on costs. That price would be better for both consumer and producer, and it would destroy the black market. The housewife would no longer have to pay extortion ate prices for vegetables that were not controlled, and the cost of living would be reduced. Potatoes would still be the cheapest vegetables at 6d a lb.» and, if the growers knew that they could get £40 a ton, they would plant with confidence for me coming season, ne urgea wie Government to give most ser ious consideration to the facts, and to act immediately because now was the time to prepare for the next season. Mr. Hughes said that the...
