HC Deb 10 December 1934 vol 296 c18
26. Mr. HALES

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that the brewers are not in all cases honouring their undertaking as to the proportion of home-grown barley used in the brewing of all classes of beer; and whether he will take steps to see that the undertaking is carried out?


I have been asked to reply. I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which the Chancellor of the Exchequer gave on the 27th November to my hon. Friend the Member for the Henley Division (Sir G. Fox).

59. Sir G. FOX

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the introduction of legislation calling for a return to be made by maltsters and brewers of all malting barley used by them, such return to differentiate between English and foreign barley?


The answer is in the negative.


Would it be possible to obtain this differentiation without legislation by the voluntary co-operation of the brewers?
