§ 24. Mr. Parker
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that much of the rice now being sold in Dagenham is musty and appears to have been long in store; and what action he is taking to withdraw it from sale.
§ Major Lloyd George
All rice imported from the East is recleaned or remilled and rebagged before being issued, but a small quantity, distributed recently, still had a slightly musty flavour. As soon as this was reported arrangements were made for the rice to be exchanged for sound deliveries.
