HC Deb 20 March 1940 vol 358 cc1983-4
57. Mr. Lambert

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that truck-loads of whole rolls and loaves of bread are being sent from Nine Elms Station, Southern Railway, to Devonshire for pig and poultry food; and whether he can state the origin of such bread?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I would refer my right hon. Friend to the reply given to him yesterday by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Transport. I am having further inquiries made.

Mr. Lambert

Is my hon. Friend aware that good bread is being sent from a station in London to Devonshire for pig and poultry food, and is not this a scandal?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I will make inquiries into the matter. If the facts are as my hon. Friend says, certainly it is a scandal.
