§ 79. Mr. Turton
asked the Minister of Food with which countries of the sterling area he is now negotiating for the purchase of feedingstuffs to be imported into this country.
§ Mr. Strachey
Australia is the only significant supplier within the sterling area of cereal feedingstuffs. We have bought their exportable surplus of barley and oats, and have just fixed a price for the sorghums which will be available from the first crop of the Overseas Food Corporation's Queensland scheme this year.
§ Mr. Turton
Can the Minister say what is the quantity of barley and oats he has just bought from Australia?
