HC Deb 01 March 1917 vol 90 c2128
29. Mr. CLANCY

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland whether his attention has been directed to a resolution passed by the county Dublin Advisory Committee on Food Production to the effect that the restrictions on the output of the by-products of brewing and distilling was likely to cause a serious shortage in the food for milking stock; and whether this circum stance will be taken into account with a view to modifying the restrictions to which reference is made?


The Department of Agriculture have received a copy of the resolution mentioned. The restrictions referred to will probably cause a shortage in the by-products of breweries and distilleries which are used as food for milking stock, but other supplies of cereal food will be released, and I am told that concentrated foods can be used as substitutes.

Forward to
