HC Deb 28 October 1919 vol 120 c468
50. Mr. GLYN ES

asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the resolution of the Consumers' Council stating that, in view of the fact that the Prime Minister has given no reply to the deputation which urged upon him the necessity for at once establishing the Ministry of Food upon a permanent basis, the council again presses upon the Government and the House of Commons the importance of constituting forthwith the Ministry of Food as a Department of national administration with widely increased powers; and if he will say what action the Government propose to take in view of the support that the Consumers' Council has on the part of organised labour and consumers?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the last part I would refer the right hon. Member to the answer which I gave yesterday to the hon. Member for Smethwick
