§ 59. Dr. Little
asked the Minister of Food whether, for an increased supply of milk and eggs so much needed in the interest of the health of the people, he will release a larger supply of feeding stuff and poultry meal for milch cows and fowls.
§ Colonel Llewellin
All the feeding stuffs available are being released, and my hon. Friend will be glad to hear that rations for farm poultry and, I may add, for pigs, will be increased from 1st January, 1945.
How much of the grain grown in this country goes into beer and how much into food? Could I have an answer, because people are getting worried about the lack of feeding stuffs?
§ Mr. Molson
Can we have an assurance that there will be no diversion of good nourishment from beer in order to feed the beasts of the field?
