HC Deb 13 August 1919 vol 119 c1302

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether his attention has been called to the profiteering which is being carried on in the sale of food of all kinds for animals and poultry; and whether he will obtain detailed reports, if necessary, with a view to taking action?

Lieut.-Colonel GILMOUR

I have been asked to reply. An Order prohibiting dealings in cattle cakes and meals except under licence will shortly be issued. One of the conditions of the licence will be that cakes and meals shall be sold at prices agreed by the Ministry of Food.
