§ The PRIME MINISTER
The whole subject has been and is day by day engaging the close attention of a Committee of the Cabinet. It is impossible, within the limits of an answer to a question, to detail the precise steps.
§ Mr. CHARLES BATHURST
asked the Prime Minister whether, in regulating and possibly fixing the price of bread, meat, 2157W and other human food in order to prevent speculation and the consequent undue enhancement of its cost to the working population, the Government will offer some bonus or premium to farmers to encourage them to keep upon their premises at the disposal of the Government wheat and other cereal grain now being harvested in the United Kingdom, and to induce them to break up pasture for the sowing of a large additional area of wheat and other cereals during the coming autumn?
