§ Mr. J. P. L. Thomas
asked the Minister of Food whether any steps have been taken by his Department to secure a more equitable distribution of feeding-stuffs; and whether there is any likelihood of an improvement in the shortage that exists in the county of Hereford?
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
The securing of an even distribution of feeding-stuffs throughout the country is a matter which is subject to the continuous attention of my Department. I am advised that there has recently been an improvement in supplies in the county of Hereford and that the shortage in that county is now no greater than in other parts of the country.
