HC Deb 13 May 1918 vol 106 cc44-5W

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?


The limited stocks of maize meal in this country are required for purposes of human food; the quantity of 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.
