HC Deb 19 February 1947 vol 433 c177W
70. Lieut.-Colonel Corbett

asked the Minister of Food what were the total stocks of wheat held by his Department in this country on 1st February as compared with the amount held on 1st February, 1946, taking the latter figure as 100.

Dr. Summerskill

As my right hon. Friend told the hon. Member for North Dorset (Mr. Byers) on 10th July last figures of wheat stocks can only be disclosed in the most exceptional circumstances, and I am afraid that it is not possible for me to give the figures for which the hon. Member is asking.
