§ 65. Sir CLEMENT KINLOCH-COOKE
asked the Food Controller whether he is aware that hardly any cheese can be 1708 obtained in London; and will he make such arrangements as will mitigate the shortage?
§ Mr. McCURDY
The supplies of cheese now available for distribution to the civilian population throughout the country are very low, owing to the limited facilities for the transportation of cheese from Australasia, the only source of supply ouside this country at the present time. It is anticipated that there will be considerable improvement in the position in the early summer.
§ Sir C. KINLOCH-COOKE
Can the hon. Gentleman explain why he puts the prices down when no cheese is to be obtained?
