§ 40. Mr. G. MACDONALD
asked the Minister of Agriculture the proportion of food for home consumption produced in this country and imported from abroad, giving separate figures for Empire production?
§ Mr. ELLIOT
I have no later information on this subject than that contained in the "Report on the Agricultural Output and Food Supplies of Great Britain" issued in 1929, and based on the years 1924–27. It was estimated that about 40 per cent. by value of our food supplies were home-produced, and nearly 22 per cent. were received from British countries.
