§ 58. Mr. Driberg
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he has completed his review of the possibility of extending the basis of the feedingstuffs ration; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. T. Williams
No, Sir. I made a full statement on 25th March and I do not expect to be able to add to it for some little time.
§ Mr. Driberg
Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that that statement only dealt in rather general terms with this possibility, and how long is "some little time"?
§ Mr. Williams
As the hon. Member will be aware, details of a scheme for widening the basis of the rationing scheme must take a little time to work out if it is to be workable, equitable and economical with regard to such additional feedingstuffs as will be available
