HC Deb 15 November 1917 vol 99 c586W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he can give any information about the arrangements made for the manufacture of potato flour; whether the necessary machinery has been supplied and to whom; and to what authority will be entrusted the business of buying potatoes and selling the potato flour?


It would be premature to give any detailed information on this subject at present. The Food Controller, in co-operation with the Departments of Agriculture, is actively engaged in developing projects for the manufacture of potato flour, and it is hoped that a considerable proportion of the surplus of this year's crop of potatoes can be used in this way.
