HC Deb 21 May 1947 vol 437 cc254-5W
49. Mr. Thornton-Kemsley

asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the fact that beekeepers' stocks are likely to suffer from the damage done to pollen-bearing plants by the severe winter, he will make supplies of soya flour available for allocation to beekeepers upon the certificate of a recognised beekeepers' association.

Dr. Edith Summerskill

The Ministry of Food does not allocate or hold stock: of soya flour, and as it is comparatively scarce we should not be prepared to authorise its use for any purpose other than the manufacture or preparation of human food.
