HC Deb 14 August 1919 vol 119 cc1644-5W
Lieut.-Colonel WEIGALL

asked the Food Controller whether the Royal Commission on Wheat Supply have cancelled sales of maize td farmers in this country in order that it may be sent to Ireland; and, if so, for what reason?


The Royal Commission on Wheat Supplies do not sell maize to farmers. Urgent circumstances recently made it necessary to divert a steamer with maize from Hull to an Irish port; another steamer was immediately instructed to load maize for Hull, and the trade have been advised of this.
