POTATO MARKETING BOARD:
Mr. Short, of Potato Marketing Board, 'phoned this morning to ask whether we could make use of any potatoes for consignment to Spain.
He can offer up to 4,000 tons (of which about 1,000 tons in Scotland) at a price of 30s. a ton free bags on board ship in any Yorkshire, Lincolnshire or Scottish port.
The approximate price at Liverpool or Southampton would be 35s. to 37s.6d., but he suggests if we wish to buy and wish to despatch from any port not in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire or Scotland, we 'phone him (Holborn 9152) and ask for a price.
I informed him that we would endeavour to give him a reply tomorrow.
