HC Deb 03 May 1956 vol 552 c57W
Mr. P. Williams

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what strategic reserves of tinned or dehydrated potatoes his Department is holding; and whether he will consider the possibility of releasing some of these stocks for civilian consumption in the present situation.

Mr. H. Nicholls

It is not the policy of Her Majesty's Government to disclose what strategic reserves of food are held or to release such reserves to meet a temporary shortage.
