HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 c1623W

asked the Food Controller if he is aware that no shortage exists of edible oil-seeds in the countries of origin, while a serious shortage exists in this country of edible oil, causing numerous fried-fish shops to close; and what steps are being taken to prevent profiteering in this commodity and to get regular supplies for the fried-fish trade as in 1918?


I cannot usefully add anything to the answers given on this subject to the hon. and gallant Member for Hull Central (Lieut.-Commander Ken-worthy) on 1st and 4th July.
