§ 21. Colonel P. WILLIAMS
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, seeing that the sale of stocks of Government bacon was completed in July, and that the last delivery was made on the 5th November, he can state if any staff is still employed on the bacon section of the food department of the Board of Trade; if so, what is the number; and what salaries are being paid?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
An expert staff is still employed in the liquidation of the accounts of the bacon section, and in dealing with the complicated claims, involving many millions of pounds, still outstanding. This staff is 60 in number, the salaries paid amounting to £l,303 per month.
