§ Sir T. Moore
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what was the total amount of barley used for the brewing of beer in Great Britain during 1936; what percentage of this was British grown; and how this percentage compares with that for previous recent years?
§ Lieut.-Colonel Colville
Official statistics are not available as to the proportion of British-grown barley used in brewing. A percentage comparison between successive years is therefore not possible, but I will write to my hon. and gallant Friend and explain to him what information is available.
