§ 29. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Secretary of State for India if he will make a statement respecting the present food situation; and what progress has been made respecting the campaign to increase the production of foodstuffs.
§ Mr. Amery
The food situation in India and the progress of the "Grow More Food" campaign have been reviewed at an All-India Food Conference recently held in New Delhi and I am placing in the Library of the House reports of speeches by Sir J. P. Srivastava, Member for Food, and Sir Jogendra Singh, Member for Education, Health and Lands.
§ Mr. Sorensen
Meanwhile, could the right hon. Gentleman say exactly what percentage increase in the production of foodstuffs has been achieved during the last two or three years?
