HC Deb 09 May 1939 vol 347 c312W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether, in view of the fact that many sections of the public are still uncertain as to how they can best co-operate in the matter of food storage, he will take early steps to make it clear that all householders who can afford to do so should increase their stocks of food to the maximum possible; that they should buy British goods as opposed to foreign wherever possible; and that the stores should be used and replenished at frequent intervals?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Stourbridge (Mr. R. Morgan) on 18th April. I am satisfied the Government's attitude and the list of suitable foods and instructions as to the best methods of storage, prepared by the Food (Defence Plans) Department, have received considerable publicity.
