HC Deb 11 February 1941 vol 368 cc1236-7W
Mr. De la Bère

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether, since oats are now almost unobtainable by poultry keepers throughout the country, and as this is to a large extent brought about by the labelling of all available supplies of oats as seed oats, irrespective of whether they will ultimately be sold as seed oats, he will take steps to ensure that some supplies are available to the poultry keepers throughout the country?

Mr. Hudson

It is usual at this season of the year for a large part of the sales of oats to be devoted to seed. The ration coupons or cards issued to poultry keepers will enable them to purchase other suitable feedingstuffs if oats are not available in sufficient quantity.
