HC Deb 30 January 1918 vol 101 c1546
58. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, in view of the fact that the prohibition of the export of butter from Ireland prejudices the Irish population by interfering with an established trade and decreases the supply of butter in England, where the shortage is greater than in Ireland, while it increases the competition for the insufficient supplies available of both butter and margarine, he will consider the advisability of cancelling that Order?


I have nothing to add to the at seers already given to the hon. Members for South Tyrone and Rutland on the 17th and 22nd January.
