§ 58. Mr. A. R. W. Low
asked the Minister of Food why the quality of glucose, supplied by the Ministry of Food to manufacturers of sweetmeats, has deteriorated recently; and what is being done to provide the proper quality of glucose.
§ Mr. Strachey
My Department does not supply glucose direct, but allocates the raw material to manufacturers. Owing to currency difficulties not all of the starch allocated recently has been of the types which produce the highest quality glucose, but everything possible will be done to provide the best kinds of starch available.
