§ 93. Viscount Hinchingbrooke
asked the Minister of Food what quantities of milk were used in the making of plastics in each of the years 1939 to 1946 inclusive; and what is the weekly amount now processed in this way.
§ Dr. Summerskill
Some six to eight million gallons of skimmed milk were used in 1938 in the manufacture of casein for plastics. I have no precise information of the quantities used in 1939. No milk has been used for plastics since the early days of 1940.
