§ Mr. MAURICE HEALY
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?
§ Mr. CLYNES
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.
