§ Mrs. Braddock
asked the Minister of Food if his attention has been drawn to the waste of sugar while unloading the ship s.s. "Bolbeg" in the East Harrington Dock, Liverpool; if he is aware that his sugar control officer in Liverpool stated nothing could be done about it when he was informed: and if he will see that 20W steps are taken in future to prevent the loss of food in this way.
§ Mr. Webb
The cargo of this vessel, which was held up by the unofficial strike of dockers at Liverpool, arrived in a very bad state. Its condition was at once reported to my Department, and I am satisfied that, under the direction of my sugar control officer at the port, every effort has been made to minimise loss by mending bags and gathering up loose sugar.
