HC Deb 02 June 1937 vol 324 c1020W
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.
