§ 36. Viscount WOLMER
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is taking any steps to promote the consumption of meat, fruit, and vegetables sold under the national-mark scheme in the Army, and in the Navy, Army, and Air Force institutes?
§ Mr. SHAW
As regards meat, I would refer the Noble Lord to the answer given on the 4th instant by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture to the hon. Member for Horncastle, of which I am sending him a copy. As regards fruit and vegetables covered by the scheme, purchases direct by the War Department are, I understand, comparatively small, but I will look into the matter in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Agriculture. Purchases made by the Navy, Army and Air Force institutes are not under the control of the War Department, but I will draw the attention of the Board of Management to the Noble Lord's question.
§ 39. Captain CROOKSHANK
asked the Secretary of State for War how much German bounty-fed wheat has been bought during the last four months for the use of troops stationed in the United Kingdom?
