HC Deb 29 October 1918 vol 110 c1299W

asked the Food Controller whether he has received a resolution from the committee of the Cork City and County Bee-keepers' Association claiming that bee-keepers should receive the same facilities for the purchase of sugar as is given to fruit-growers; and whether he is prepared to accede to this request?


The resolution referred to in this question has been received by the Food Controller. Arrangements have been made to increase the supplies of bee candy, and a system of rationing the supplies of bee food to bee-keepers is in contemplation. It is not considered advisable to issue for use as bee food sugar which is suitable for domestic consumption.
