asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is aware that many onions, particularly bull necks, are going bad owing to the refusal to allow growers to sell direct to the public; and whether he will speed up the sales machinery to prevent wastage?

Major Lloyd George:

Onions which are known in the trade as "bull necked" onions have been sold through the normal channels of trade under the provisions of the Green Onions (Maximum Prices) Order and there is no evidence of waste. Dry bulb onions are being distributed by the National Vegetable Marketing Company.
