§ Mr. FIELD
asked the President of the Local Government Board whether arrangements have been made for supplying at cost price unions, infirmaries, hospitals, and other public institutions direct with meat bought by the Government, notwithstanding the fact that all surplus meats were practically ear-marked to be disposed of through the ordinary wholesale channels?
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. I may refer my hon. Friend to an answer,422W of which I am sending him a copy, given to the hon. Member for Hanley on 10th July last, explaining the action of the Board of Trade as regards supplies of meat to public institutions.
