HC Deb 12 July 1917 vol 95 c2113

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether his attention has been called to the deleterious effect of war bread upon the health of many aged persons and invalids; and whether in bonả fide cases of necessity certified by a doctor he will consider the possibility of permitting the use of ordinary flour?


Applications for the use of special flour in the manufacture of bread, when supported by a doctor's certificate, are considered by the Ministry of Food, and licences are granted upon the recommendation of a special board appointed by the Royal Society.
