§ 42. Sir T. Moore
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food what steps he is taking to prevent the waste of food in Covent Garden market?
The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Major Lloyd George)
A certain amount of waste is unavoidable in fresh fruit and vegetable markets, but any person who fails to take reasonable steps to prevent the waste of food of which he has control is liable to prosecution under the Waste of Food Order.
§ Sir T. Moore
Have the Department any knowledgeable inspectors to see that waste does not take place at Covent Garden market?
Major Lloyd George
Yes, Sir. We have a case under investigation now, and I hope to get a report in a few days.
