§ Lieut.-Commander Tufnell
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether a yearly or half-yearly Report from the officer dealing with the question of food supplies will be made available to Parliament?
§ Dr. Burgin
I will bring the suggestion made by my hon. and gallant Friend to the notice of my right hon. Friend. At the same time I would point out that in common with other aspects of Defence preparations, much of the work of this Department must necessarily be of a confidential nature. Occasion will no doubt occur from time to time for dealing with the work of the Department in the course of Debate.
