HC Deb 12 March 1951 vol 485 c116W
86. Mr. Spence

asked the Minister of Food whether he will consider introducing a sliding scale of prices for brewing and malting by-products, used as feeding-stuffs, to relate these to the current price of barley.

Mr. F. Willey

No. My right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture announced on 15th February last that increases in the prices of feedingstuffs would be inevitable within the next few months. The prices of brewing and malting by-products used as feedingstuffs will be increased in conformity with increases in the prices of other feedingstuffs to be announced later.
