§ 76. Brigadier Genera CROFT
asked what is the number of carcases of mutton, lamb, and beef, respectively, lying in cold storage in Australia and New Zealand; and what portion of the 250 refrigerated steamers under the control of the Ministry of Shipping have been released to bring home these supplies of meat?
§ Mr. BRIDGEMAN
I have been asked to answer this question. The latest information as to stocks of meat in cold storage is as follows:
§ All the insulated steamers regularly employed in trading to Australia and New Zealand that were diverted in 1918 to other routes have now been returned to their proper employment, and two other steamers have recently been sent to Australia and New Zealand to assist in relieving the congestion.
