§ 85. Mr. STURROCK
asked the Food Controller if he can state why, since there is an ample supply of oats in Scotland, the price of oatmeal continues to be 50 per cent. higher than flour in that country; and whether he is aware that the present price bears hardly upon the poorer classes of the community?
§ Mr. MCCURDY
According to the Food Controller's information, the price of oats in Scotland is declining at the present time. The question of reducing the price of oatmeal is now under consideration, and I hope to make an announcement on the subject within the next ten days.
§ Sir E. CARSON
Will the same announcement apply to Ireland where there are great complaints about the price?
