§ 55. Brigadier-General Clifton Brown
asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware of a considerable reduction in milk production owing to brewers' grains being no longer available for feeding cows; and whether he will arrange with brewers to sell their grains in the winter months when grass is no longer available?
I am not aware that either milk output or the quantity of brewers' grains fed to cows has been reduced. County war agricultural executive committees have, in fact, been 297 authorised to divert wet grains to dairy farmers when such a diversion is desirable to maintain milk supplies.
Does not my right hon. Friend realise that if we want milk we must grow grain at this time of the year?
