§ Mr. THOMAS STANFORD
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that the new order increasing by 3 per cent the amount of offal in the flour supplied to bakers is causing general dissatisfaction among consumers, and that associations of master bakers are protesting against bread being debased in appearance and quality at the very time when the price has been raised by 1¾d. per loaf; and if he will reconsider the matter with a view to withdrawing or modifying the order?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON:
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given on Monday, 26th April, to the hon. Member for East Nottingham (Sir J. D. Rees).
§ Major ENTWISTLE
asked the Minister of Food if he has received any complaints as to the poor quality of flour now being supplied to the trade; and if he will take steps to prevent the increased extraction, which is unfair and unsatisfactory to the consuming public?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer given yesterday on this subject to the hon. Baronet the Member for East Nottingham (Sir J. D. Rees).
