§ 69. Mr. FELL
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will consider the question of the use of rice in this country from which the skin which contains the most nutritive portion of the grain has been removed by polishing by machinery; and if he will forbid this polishing of the rice, which is only done to give it an additional white appearance, and compel it to be sold in its natural condition during the continuance of the War?
§ Mr. PRETYMAN
I have received other representations on this subject, which is receiving my careful consideration.
