§ Sir H. NIELD
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether there are supplies of maize meal or polenta in this country available for the feeding of dogs; whether he can afford facilities for this article to be obtained; and whether or not it will be necessary to make it the subject of rationing?
§ Mr. CLYNES
The limited stocks of maize meal in this country are required for purposes of human food; the quantity of 45W polenta is negligible. I may, however, state that, with the approval of the War Cabinet, the Royal Commission on Wheat Supplies have arranged to release a limited quantity of flour for use in the manufacture of dog biscuits.
