HC Deb 03 March 1947 vol 434 c7W
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.
