§ 96. Captain WRIGHT
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he has now completed his inquiry and will he state what is the average weekly tonnage of milk and sugar consumed by the Nestle and Anglo-Swiss Con- 2203 densed Milk Company in the manufacture of their various products; and what proportion of these is exported for purposes other than those of our Navy and Army and Allies?
§ Mr. CLYNES
As I informed the hon. Member on 25th October, this company think it undesirable to publish the actual amount of milk and sugar used in their condenseries. They state, however, that the whole of their considerable business is now carried on for the exclusive benefit of the Armies in the field and the Allied civilian populations.
§ Captain WRIGHT
Will the hon. Gentleman consider the advisability of applying to this foreign company some control such as has been applied to so many English companies?
