asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office what proportion of foodstuffs supplied to the Army is Empire grown?49W
§ Mr. SANDERS
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.
