§ Mr. G. HARVEY
asked the President of the Board of Trade if the old wartime Ministry of Food staff is entirely disbanded and the Department closed down; and, if not, what is the present cost?
§ Sir B. CHADWICK
It has been necessary to retain a very small staff, in order to complete the liquidation of accounts, and the settlement of claims, involving large sums of money. Its cost for the financial year 1926–27 is £5,018.
