§ 24. Captain HEILGERS
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he has any figures showing the amount of barley used by manufacturers of patent food; and, if so, can he specify the quantities 13 of home and imported barley, respectively?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
I regret that I have no information as to the amount of barley used by manufacturers of patent food.
§ Captain HEILGERS
In view of the very large quantity of lower-grade malting barley that is used by these manufacturers, much of which is imported, will the Minister make an approach to them with a view to their using a greater quantity of the home-produced article?
