HC Deb 07 December 1937 vol 330 c180
7. Major Rayner

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in connection with the organisation of the food supplies of the country, he will consider advising those families which are in a position to do so permanently to double their normal storage of non-perishable articles; and whether, since this policy could be adopted in peace time, but not when war had actually broken out, he will give the suggestion early consideration?

Mr. O. Stanley

The suggestion made by my hon. and gallant Friend has received careful consideration during recent months, but I am not prepared to adopt it at the present time.
