35. Mr. De la Bére
asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the total cold-storage capacity of this country for meat, butter, and eggs; and to how many days' supply this is equivalent?
§ The President of the Board of Trade (Mr. Runciman)
I have received particulars of storage facilities for food available in this country, but it would not be in the public interest to publish them.
36. Mr. De la Bére
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any arrangement for reserves of canned food 777 supplies has been made; and how many days' supply the Government consider to be the irreducible minimum?
§ Mr. Runciman
I cannot at present add to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence to the hon. Member for Norwood (Mr. Sandys) on 27th January.
