§ 52. Mr. Molson
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Food whether he is aware of the shortage of bottled beer on long-distance trains; what steps are being taken to ensure adequate supplies; and whether this shortage is any way due to the diversion of barley suitable for brewing for mixing with flour?
§ Mr. Mabane
I have no reason to believe that the availability of bottled beer in restaurant cars on long-distance trains differs from its availability generally. The reply to the last part of the Question is "No, Sir."
§ Mr. Gallacher
Is the hon. Gentleman aware of the difficulty of obtaining food on long-distance trains?
