HC Deb 17 April 1946 vol 421 c2682
62. Flying-Officer Bowden

asked the Minister of Food if he will refuse to grant additional quotas of grain to brewers during the present world grain shortage.

Sir B. Smith

There is no indication that it will be necessary to issue licences to brewers to buy more than the 814,000 tons of cereals which it is estimated they will need, during the present brewing year up to 30th September next, on the basis of current production requirements.
