§ 46. Lieut.-Colonel ASSHETON POWNALL
asked the Prime Minister whether he is yet in a position to state the intentions of the Government with regard to the proposal contained in paragraph 35 (b) of the Report issued by the Select Committee on National Expenditure dealing with the Wheat Commission which indicated the possibility of a saving of £14,500,000 yearly by the restriction of the bread subsidy to flour actually used for bread?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of FOOD (Mr. McCurdy)
I have been asked to reply. The whole question of the continuance of the bread subsidy is at present under the consideration of the Cabinet. An announcement on the subject will be made as soon as possible.
