HC Deb 08 November 1944 vol 404 c1358
52. Mr. T. Henderson

asked the Minister of Food whether his attention has been called to the serious reduction in the output of oatmeal owing to shortage of supplies of oats; and if he will, as an emergency measure, release part of the Ministry's reserve stock of oats, in order that output may be increased and a serious shortage of oatmeal prevented from arising.

The Minister of Food (Colonel Llewellin)

I am importing oat products from Canada in order to meet this difficulty.
