§ Mr. WILLIAM NICHOLSON
asked the Food Controller whether he has made any 191W arrangements for the supply of sugar to beekeepers for the autumn; whether he is aware that the present season has been disastrous and at the present time there is very little honey in the brood frames for winter consumption, and that unless sugar is provided large numbers of stocks will die of starvation; and whether he will endeavour to make more satisfactory arrangements for the supply of sugar than he made last year?
Sir ARTHUR BOSCAWEN
The Board have arranged with the Royal Commission on the sugar supply for an allocation of sugar to all beekeepers registered with county bee committees, or committees acting for them under the Board's scheme, which it is believed will be sufficient for all requirements. This sugar will be available immediately and beekeepers will be able to use their allocation as they think fit.
