35. Mr. HARRIS
asked the President of the Board of Agriculture whether it is proposed to fix the price of grain mixtures for poultry feeding-stuffs; and whether he is aware that, under the present arrangement, farmers can get better prices for corn they have been fortunate enough to get damaged than that which is fit for human consumption?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of FOOD (Mr. Clynes)
I have been asked to reply. Prices of grain mixtures for poultry food have already been fixed. The answer to the last part of the question is in the negative. Maximum prices have been fixed for damaged grain, whether home-grown or 1707 imported, at a figure considerably lower than the maximum prices for sound grain.
