HC Deb 07 March 1940 vol 358 cc593-4W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Minister of Food whether the factories to be set up for dealing with potatoes will be capable of producing farina and other by-products; and whether, in consultation with the Minister of Agriculture, the feeding-stuffs committees in each county could be associated with the management of the factories in order to ensure proper distribution of the resultant feeding-stuffs for livestock?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

It is not intended that any of the new factories which are now being set up for the manufacture of potato meal shall be equipped for the manufacture of farina, but I have received a number of proposals for providing or adapting other factories for that purpose and they are being considered. With regard to the last part of the Question, I will bear the suggestion in mind.
