HC Deb 11 July 1940 vol 362 c1371W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he will consider the issue of an appeal to all households to avoid the prevalent waste of bread; and whether he will include in his appeal the information that the saving of one ounce of bread per day per head would equal the saving of 500,000 tons of wheat per year for which shipping would otherwise be required?

Mr. Boothby

In the Ministry's food campaign, particular emphasis has been laid on saving bread and on ways in which bread should be used up; and this will be continued. Considerable publicity has already been given in the Ministry's leaflets and in other ways to the illustration in the second part of my hon. Friend's Question.
