HC Deb 12 December 1949 vol 470 cc217-8W
62. Mr. McFarlane

asked the Minister of Food by what amount stocks of wheat and flour in store or in transit, already paid for, appreciated in terms of sterling at 19th September, 1949.

Dr. Summerskill

No question of writing up the value of stocks arises, although of course the proceeds of sale will appreciate as a result of the raising of the price of flour.
