§ 7. Colonel Sir ARTHUR HOLBROOK
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider the desirability of prohibiting the importation into this country of flour, in preference to wheat, thereby increasing and cheapening the supply of offals for feeding purposes and also assisting the milling industry at home in the employment of more labour?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
Without fresh legislation, His Majesty's Government have no power to restrict the importation of flour, and I do not think it desirable to introduce such legislation. I have observed that, since the reduction in the price of flour in this country, the proportion of flour to wheat in our imports has shown a very sensible decline.
