HC Deb 17 June 1930 vol 240 cc48-9W
Marquess of TITCHFIELD

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what proportion of foodstuffs supplied to the Army is Empire grown?


It is estimated that over 95 per cent. of the foodstuffs supplied to the Army and Air Force is Empire grown. In making this calculation a few items are excluded, such as flour for bread, and margarine, which are manufactured in this country but the ingredients of which may be either Empire-grown or foreign.
