§ 81. Mr. DUNCAN MILLAR
asked the Minister of Munitions if he has taken expert advice as to whether the stocks of spirits at present in hand can be made available for the purpose of manufacturing explosives; and whether, having regard to the necessity for conserving food materials, he will consider as to stopping the further manufacture of alcohol for munition purposes until the existing stocks of spirits, so far as available for that purpose, have been exhausted?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of MUNITIONS (Sir Worthington Evans)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The whole matter is receiving careful consideration.
