§ Viscount WOLMER
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Agriculture what steps the Government are taking to ensure that wheat coming into this country shall come in whole, so that the milling can be done in this country and the offals utilised?
I have been asked to reply. The Royal Commission on Wheat Supplies is fully alive to the feeding stuffs position and the desirability of promoting the output of milling offals. In view of the prospective shortage of feeding-stuffs during the latter part of the year, every effort will be made to fall in with the policy outlined by the hon. Lord.
§ Brigadier-General Sir OWEN THOMAS
asked the Food Controller whether the existing functions of the Wheat Commission at Carlton House, Regent Street, warrant the continued employment of so large a staff as still remains there; and if not, what steps he proposes to take to dispense with the services of all employés surplus to the actual requirements?
The staff of the Flour Mills Control Committee and a portion of the staff of the Accounts Branch of the Royal Commission on Wheat Supplies are accommodated at Carlton House, Regent Street, and I am satisfied that in neither case can a reduction in the establishment be made at present.
