HC Deb 05 July 1917 vol 95 cc1265-6
74. Major HUNT

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, in view of the very different qualities of bread now made and of the inferior and unwholesome quality of some of it, he will have the flour supplied to the bakers of an even and equal quality so that bakers should no longer have any excuse for making inferior and unwhole some bread?


asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of complaints amongst the poor, who have to depend largely on bread for their diet, that injury is being caused to their health owing to the mixtures used in making the flour; and whether he will take steps to place on the market a more digestible and wholesome flour for the use of the working classes!


I must refer the hon. Members to the answer given on this point yesterday.

Major HUNT

Can the hon. Gentleman say whether it would not be possible to have the flour supplies of an even quality?


I think, if my hon. and gallant Friend will read the answer which was given yesterday he will see that it contains all I can say on the subject.
