§ Lord Willoughby de Eresby
asked the Minister of Food the current price per ton of maize, barley and meat and bone meal being imported by his Department.
§ Mr. Strachey
It would not be in the public interest to disclose the prices of the maize, barley and meat and bone meal currently being imported by my Department. I would, however, refer the hon. Member to the reply given today to the hon. Member for Glasgow, Central, regarding the price of maize and barley imported from the U.S.S.R. during 1948. The price of the relatively small quantities of meat and bone meal recently imported was about £25 per ton. c.i.f.
