HC Deb 15 December 1936 vol 318 c2289W
Colonel ROPNER

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that the supply of home-grown wheat is only sufficient for three months; and whether any provision is being made to increase the means of storage?


I am aware that the normal home wheat crop, after making allowance for seed, is estimated to he sufficient for three months' requirements for human consumption. The question of storage is receiving attention.
