Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Wheat Surplus, Scotland (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: I understand that we had an abnormal number of threshings by farmers which put additional wheat on the market, and because the millers themselves could not take it, my Department stepped in and stored it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Co-operative Society Tea Party, Hitchin (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: The answer to the first part of the Question is "No, Sir." The normal supplies of food available to a catering establishment were used on the occasion to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Co-operative Society Tea Party, Hitchin (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: It is the ordinary practice that catering establishments provide teas if they are allowed to do so. That is why they are catering establishments.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Co-operative Society Tea Party, Hitchin (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: I do not think it demonstrates that at all. What it demonstrates is that this co-operative society was working completely within the rules, but it does not mean that other caterers could not have provided this tea.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Rations (Reductions) (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: The reductions in rations upon which the late Government decided, and which I announced in May, were due to a decline in world food production and an increase in demand. The fall in production is attributable to the continuing shortage of man-power in producing countries, to lack of fertilisers and to abnormal conditions of drought in the Southern Dominions, South Africa, South America and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Rations (Reductions) (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: I am very sorry about that. I did my best. I gave a very long Press conference which was reported in practically every newspaper. It was also on the radio. I am doing, and will continue to do, my best.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Rations (Reductions) (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: That was not so at all. It was decided by the old Government, as any of the hon. Member's colleagues who were in that Government will inform him. It was decided by that Government and announced about a week after it had been decided, because of certain technical arrangements. It was a genuine decision. Any Government would have had to come to it, and I do hope that this really serious food...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Rations (Reductions) (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: I will look into that point.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Rations (Reductions) (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: In regard to any livestock products it is rather a long-term business, especially in meat. Chickens and things of that sort can be reared as soon as more ships can be devoted to bringing feeding stuffs for them. We hope to do that. The oils and fats position will depend largely on how soon we can get back Malaya and the Dutch East Indies from whence large supplies of copra came before the war.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Local Holiday Weeks (Food Allocation) (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: The request to local authorities to extend the period of their summer entertainment programme was coupled with a request to industrial undertakings to stagger their workers' holidays. Where this is done it will be possible to utilise food from the works canteens under the arrangements to which my hon. Friend refers.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Local Holiday Weeks (Food Allocation) (13 Jun 1945)

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Infant Welfare Foods (Cheltenham) (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: The answer to both parts of the hon. Member's Question is "No, Sir."

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Infant Welfare Foods (Cheltenham) (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: I do not know anything about the post offices, but there are not normally queues in any of these welfare food sections of the food offices. The reason for payment being made in stamps is to save a vast accounting procedure. If we had to have accounting officers in the 12,000 distribution centres it would mean a tremendous increase in staff. Moreover, as soon as dried milk came under the same...

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Infant Welfare Foods (Cheltenham) (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: There is no waste. In Cheltenham there is only five weeks' supply of orange juice and rather more of cod liver oil. Both keep as long as that.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Herring (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: The comparatively small quantities of herring landed so far this season cannot be regarded as glut supplies, and I am not aware of any wasted catches. We have made considerable arrangements to kipper or cure surplus herrings.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Oatmeal (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: Arrangements have been made to meet any temporary shortage of oatmeal by allocating supplies from Ministry stocks of imported oat products. Supplies are not being exported other than for the use of our Forces. The capacity of the industry is sufficient to meet requirements.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Oatmeal (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: There was a pretty bad oat crop last year. We have not been able to make as much of this oatmeal as normally because of this shortage. We took steps to get oat products from Canada to make up the required amount, and we are now putting them on the market.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Oatmeal (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: I quite agree, in reply to the latter part of that question, that sugar does spoil it. But I do not think we had better draw a line between Scotland and England as to exporting because Scotland would come off very much the worse if that line were drawn.

Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies: Oatmeal (13 Jun 1945)

Mr John Llewellin: If the hon. Member has any information as to any place where there is this particular shortage, I will try to see that it is overcome.
