§ 64. Mr. WATT
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he has had representations made to him by the Executive Council of the Scottish Beekeepers' Association drawing attention to the necessity of Scotland having 20 tons of sugar for syrup for bee feeding; if so, whether he has represented this case to the Food Controller and with what result; is he aware that the feeding-stuff arranged to be made by Pascall, Limited, at the suggestion of the Food Controller, is expensive and unremunerative; and will he take further steps to secure the sugar in view of the fact that it will return as honey fourteen to sixteen times its weight?
§ Mr. CLYNES
I have been asked to reply. I would refer the hon. Member to the written answer given to the hon. Member for Roxburghshire on 21st February.
§ Mr. R. McNEILL
Have Scottish bees abandoned the practice of gathering honey all the day from every opening flower, which was attributed to them by a famous namesake of the hon. Member?
§ Sir J. JARDINE
Since the hon. Gentleman answered me have measures been taken to secure this sugar?
