§ 24. Mr. Garry Allighan
asked the Minister of Food what increase in the consumption of bread he anticipates as a result of the abolition of biscuit manufacture.
§ Mr. Strachey
It will depend on the number of factories affected, the size of their stocks, and the length of the emergency. The total output of biscuits is 5 per cent. of bread production, by weight, but the electricity restrictions do not abolish biscuit manufacture; they only affect producers in some parts of the country.
