HC Deb 01 July 1919 vol 117 c784W

asked the Minister of Food (1) if he is aware that home brewing is made impossible on account of those who desire to brew not being able to obtain a supply of malt; and what steps he will take in order that a Supply of malt for home brewing may be forthcoming; and (2) whether licences for home brewing will be granted to those who were doing so before the restrictions as to home brewing came into operation?


Licences for malt for home brewing are issued by the local agricultural committees to those applicants who received supplies in 1916. A supply of malt has been allocated for home brewing which will be sufficient for the applicants in question, but owing to the limited supplies of malt available it is at present impossible to allot to other applicants.
