My right hon. Friend has not seen a detailed report of the legal proceedings in question. There is, however, clearly some misunderstanding as to the attitude attributed to the Ministry when the deputation in question was received in 1921. The records show that on that occasion certain suggestions were made which it was considered might assist retailers of small quantities of poultry food. It was also pointed out that new legislation would be required to meet the views of the deputation, but no ruling of the nature in question was given.
