Viscountess Astor

asked the Minister of Agriculture what percentage of our national requirements of wheat were home-grown and what percentage were imported in 1937 and in 1938, respectively?

It is estimated that both in the year ended 31st August, 1937, and in the following year 23 per cent. of the total wheat supplies available in the United Kingdom were home-produced and 77 per cent. were imported.
