HC Deb 08 July 1941 vol 373 c61W
Mr. Wootton-Davies

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether full consideration has been given to the possibilities of manufacturing yeast from surplus potatoes which would be a more important food than potato meal?

Major Lloyd George

Yes, Sir, this matter has been fully considered in consultation with scientific advisers. The conclusion reached is that full advantage is being taken of the food properties of surplus potatoes by the uses to which they arc at present being put.
