HC Deb 15 May 1918 vol 106 c352
68 and 69. Sir H. NIELD

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (1) whether any lower-grade meal has been used with his sanction or knowledge for the purpose of bleaching calico; if so, whether he will consider the advisability of diverting such supplies from that purpose, in order that they may be used for the manufacture of dog biscuits; (2) whether ho is in a position to make any statement in relation to the release of material for the manufacture of dog biscuits or of other suitable food for these animals, or how soon may such a statement be expected?


A limited quantity of flour is being used under the licence by the textile and other essential industries. I informed the hon. Member in a written answer on Monday that arrangements have been made to release a limited quantity of flour for use in the manufacture of dog biscuits.
