HC Deb 27 February 1940 vol 357 cc1921-2W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that since the introduction of rationing, there is an increased demand or potential demand for a type of bread containing more nourishment than the white bread generally available at the present time in this country; and whether he proposes to take any steps to ensure that arrangements shall be made at an early opportunity to meet this demand?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

From inquiries I have made, I have been unable to learn of any recent change in the character of the public demand for bread; whole meal bread of the type available before the war is still being manufactured for those who prefer it.
