HC Deb 05 February 1947 vol 432 c350W
67. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the decrease in animal feedingstuffs imported into this country in 1946 as compared with 1945, he will make a statement as to his plans and intentions for a substantial increase to be made available throughout 1947.

Dr. Summerskill

We intend to purchase increased quantities of feedingstuffs during 1947, as intimated in my reply to the hon. Member for Lonsdale (Sir I. Fraser) on 27th January. It is not possible to announce details in advance.
