HC Deb 13 March 1917 vol 91 cc896-7
29. Mr. FIELD

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he has received a resolution from the County Dublin Food Production Advisory Committee, and a letter from the Dublin Cowkeepers' and Dairymen's Association, asking that the military authorities should release at once all hay in Dublin and surrounding counties not required by them, in view of a possible shortage of milk supply in the city; and, if so, whether he proposes to take any action in the matter?


I have received a copy of the resolution referred to. The greater part of the hay not required by the military authorities has already been released. The owners of the remaining portion may depend upon prompt inspection, if they apply to the local officers.
