HC Deb 03 July 1923 vol 166 cc264-5W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office, if any alteration has now been made in the specification in tenders for the supply of flour required for troops at Home stations to require the use of a proportion of English wheat?


The flour used in Army bread has, under the terms of the contract, to be milled in this country, and the information which I have obtained from the millers on the subject indicates that part of it is usually, if not always, made from English wheat. The question of stipulating by the terms of contract for a definite proportion of English wheat is still under consideration; but I hope that a decision may be arrived at shortly.
