asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether the gentleman recently appointed Commercial Secretary to the Minister of Food has ceased to have financial interests in concerns supplying foodstuffs?

Major Lloyd George:

With my Noble Friend's full concurrence, the Commercial Secretary to the Ministry of Food has not relinquished the directorships he previously held. Since the outbreak of war, however, he has ceased to take any active part in connection with his pre-war interests in regard to foodstuffs and has given full-time service to the Ministry, without remuneration, as Director of Bacon and Ham.
