HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 cc1527-8
59. Mr. De Chair

asked the Minister of Agriculture what was the proportion of feeding stuffs for livestock produced in this country and imported, respectively, in 1913 and in 1937?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

It is estimated that imports constitute at the present time approximately 26 per cent. (on a starch equivalent basis) of the feeding stuffs required by the livestock population of the United Kingdom. I regret that a comparable figure for 1913 is not available.
