§ Dr. MACNAMARA
I am afraid that I cannot give the undertaking asked for. Whilst by far the greater proportion of the meat supplied to the Navy is home-fed, the imposition of the restriction suggested by the hon. Member would be undesirable in cases where the demand is very fluctuating, and where only very short notice can sometimes be given.
§ Colonel SEELY
It is not proposed to make any change in this respect in regard to contracts for the supply of meat.
