HC Deb 02 July 1942 vol 381 cc520-1W
Lieut.-Colonel Heneage

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food what steps are being taken to release potatoes that are liable to deteriorate for pig and poultry food?

Mr. Mabane

It is the policy of my Department in its efforts to avoid waste to release for stock feed potatoes which will not keep and for which no other outlet is immediately available. Potatoes are now being offered for stock feed at 20s. per ton delivered.
