Sir T. POLSON
asked the Minister of Food whether it is intended that with the closing of the Ministry of Food on the 31st March all orders and restrictions affecting freedom of trade for which that Ministry has been responsible shall automatically cease to be operative?
§ Mr. McCURDY
The Government's intentions were clearly announced in the reply given by the Prime Minister on 20th December last to the right hon. Member for Platting (Mr. Clynes), to which I would refer the hon. Member.
