HC Deb 23 January 1918 vol 101 c998W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food what steps are being taken to more quickly liberate for the use of stock damaged grain in the hands of farmers; and if he is aware that because of delay much deterioration of feeding properties is taking place and stock suffering?


I am aware that the method at present adopted for deciding on the fitness or unfitness of damaged grain for milling purposes occasionally involves delay, and every effort is being made to obtain these decisions as rapidly as possible. In view, however, of the multiplicity of cases throughout the country, some time must elapse before the organisation required to deal with them becomes complete.
