HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 cc1543-4W
Mr. De Chair

asked the Minister of Agriculture the proportion of barley, of non-malting quality, grown at home and imported, respectively?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

It is estimated that at the present time about one-third of the supply of barley of non-malting quality is grown in the United Kingdom and two-thirds imported. My hon. Friend will appreciate that the percentage may vary somewhat from year to year owing to the influence of weather on the malting quality of the home crop.
