HC Deb 27 January 1954 vol 522 c238W
85. Mr. Dodds

asked the Minister of Food how much has now been purchased by his Department of last year's British-grown barley; and what proportion has been sold.

Major Lloyd George

It would be against the public interest to give information about the level of current stocks; 18 per cent. of total purchases up to the 21st January had been sold by that date.
