HC Deb 25 March 1935 vol 299 c1569
13. Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is satisfied that the importation of wheat-flour into this country is not affecting the working of the Wheat Act and the milling of offals in this country?


Imports of wheat flour in the last three years have been less than the average of the five years preceding the Wheat Act, and there is no evidence that such imports have adversely affected the working of the Act. As regards the second part of the question, the total estimated available supply of wheat offals in the last two cereal years was appreciably larger than was recorded in the Census of Production taken in respect of either of the calendar years 1924 or 1930.
