HC Deb 24 July 1946 vol 426 c9W
73. Mr. S. Marshall

asked the Minister of Food whether there are any considerable stocks of flour of the lower extraction quality now remaining in the country; and what method of using these stocks is proposed by him.

Dr. Edith Summerskill

There are no stocks of flour of the lower extraction rate in the country apart from the imported flour which is milled at a lower extraction rate; small quantities of this are released for the manufacture of special foods and the balance is mixed with National Flour at the mills. The quantity of imported flour in stock varies and depends upon the arrival of imports and the rate at which they are used.
