HC Deb 14 December 1916 vol 88 c869W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been called to the fact that the greater part of the rice consumed in India and Burmah is husked by the cultivators and is not polished; and that high polished rice such as is used in this country is not consumed; and, if so, if he will prohibit the polishing of rice in this country and turn the mills and their workmen to some useful occupation?


The Food Controller recognises the importance of this fact and is making a personal investigation into the practicability of dealing with it.
