§ Mr. SITCH
asked the Minister of Food whether the penalties which for some time 480W attached to the wasting or destruction of bread apply, or could be made to apply, to other articles of food; and whether such penalties can be imposed upon dealers and purveyors of milk who, when unable to secure the maximum price for their stocks, dispose of the same, or any surplus thereof, by methods involving the public in serious deprivation of that essential food?
The Waste of Foodstuffs Order, 1918, to which the hon. Member presumably refers, is still in force. Under this Order the waste or destruction not only of bread but of all foodstuffs is prohibited.
