HC Deb 11 March 1919 vol 113 c1096
93. Captain TERRELL

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture whether preference can be given to British farmers, as against imported commitments, to dispose of their corn resulting from last year's harvest?


The Board are continually bringing to the notice of the Wheat Commission the importance of using home-grown wheat to the utmost extent which is practicable, and the Commission are desirous of doing so.

The Board have been informed by the Wheat Commission that flour millers have been instructed to use as much home-grown wheat as possible in the production of flour, and at present they are using about 30 per cent. of home-grown wheat on the average, as compared with about 20 per cent. before the War.
