§ 68. Lieut.-Colonel Kingsmill
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that good eating carrots have been sold to farmers in the Somerton area for cattle feed; and whether, in view of the shortage of vegetables in the towns, he will take steps to see that such vegetables are allocated for human consumption.
§ Dr. Summerskill
These carrots were from deteriorating surplus stocks. All sound carrots are now being used for human consumption.
