HC Deb 16 March 1978 vol 946 c285W
39. Mrs. Joyce Butler

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what discussions he has had with millers and bakers about: the desirability of producing and promoting more wholemeal bread and flour to meet the needs of elderly people and others in need of a high-fibre diet; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Strang

Neither my right hon. Friend the Minister nor I have had discussions with the millers and bakers specifically on this subject. The production of wholemeal flour and bread has increased in recent years in response to increased consumer demand and there is no evidence of any general shortage of these products.
