HC Deb 15 April 1954 vol 526 c144W
Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Food whether he is satisfied that the larger manufacturers of animal feedingstuffs will purchase home-grown barley from the stocks which his Department has acquired in fulfilment of the guarantee under the Agriculture Act.

Major Lloyd George

Yes. The President of the Compound Animal Feeding Stuffs Manufacturers' National Association has assured me that the members of his Association propose to buy at least 80 per cent, of their barley requirements from Ministry of Food stocks, provided that the price and conditions of sale are competitive.
