HC Deb 01 April 1943 vol 388 c361W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether his attention has been called to the waste of flour in stock through it being kept too long; and what control his Department exercises over offences of this nature?

Mr. Mabane

Yes, Sir. Cases of this kind have come to my notice. A firm was recently prosecuted and convicted under the Waste of Food Order for allowing flour to become unfit for human use by keeping it too long. My Department will consider taking proceedings in all such cases where sufficient evidence is obtained.
