HC Deb 22 February 1917 vol 90 cc1443-4
66. Mr. P. WHITE

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, having regard to the number of cattle in this country and the possible scarcity of milk next winter, and having regard to its value as an article of food, he will issue an Order compelling the owners of suitable heifers to take the necessary means of converting them into milk producers at the earliest opportunity?


On this, as on all questions affecting the stimulation of home production, the Food Controller will only take action if so advised by the respective Departments of Agriculture.
