HC Deb 29 October 1918 vol 110 c1297W

asked the Food Controller of he will hold an inquiry, by persons not connected with his Department, into the actual disposal of the feeding-stuffs that have been available for livestock during the first nine months of this year with a view to determining if such disposal is in strict accord with regulations and the declared policy of his Department?


I am aware that owing to the difficulty of setting up provincial organisations it has not always been possible to secure the precise priority which I desired to give. Now that a fresh scheme has been introduced and an adequate organisation brought into being I do not think that any useful purpose would be served by an inquiry into possible past shortcomings.
