HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 cc1480-1W

asked the Food Controller if his attention has been drawn to the Report of the American Commission on the Meat Trust; and, if so, what steps he proposes to take in regard thereto?


I understand that this Report has been submitted to the President of the United States. It would be clearly improper to express any opinion on the subject until the President has intimated his decision I may, however, point out that British and Allied interests are safeguarded by the fact that their supplies are obtained from the packers through the United States food administration at the same prices as those paid by the United States Army and Navy.
