§ Mr. HANNON
asked the President of the Board of Trade how much has been realised during the present financial year by the disposal of foodstuffs originally purchased by the Ministry of Food; and the estimated value of such foodstuffs still remaining for disposal?
§ Sir P. LLOYD-GREAME
The foodstuffs originally purchased by the Ministry of Food were disposed of on or before the 31st March, 1922. The only stocks which have been dealt with during the present financial year have been those in connection with the contract for the lease of the Las Palmas Meat Works, which2364W expired on the 31st December last. These realised £1,266,800, and a small amount of canned meat, worth about £5,000, still awaits disposal.
