§ 72. Mr. LAMBERT
asked the President of the Board of Trade the number of country grist mills that have been closed in England and Wales since 1918; and what has been the total number of workers displaced?
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Having regard to the extreme importance of this matter to the agricultural industry, will my right hon. Friend take steps to get this information; and is he aware that the concentration of grinding wheat at the ports is having a very deleterious effect in agricultural districts?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I will see whether the information can be obtained by some means, perhaps not purely official, and I will communicate with my hon. Friend.
