§ 68. Mr. JOHN DAVISON
asked the Prime Minister whether he has received representations from the Consumers' Council in favour of the establishment of the Ministry of Food upon a permanent basis; whether this matter has been considered; and whether he proposes to give permanence to the Ministry of Food as a Department of the national administration with widely increased powers?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The Government have come to the conclusion that the Ministry of Food must be continued for some time and can at present give no date for its termination, nor can they state to what extent or in what way some of its functions may be continued.
