§ Mr. MILLAR
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food if he can state the quantity of barley, sugar, and other materials required for the production of the 10,000,000 standard barrels of beer to be brewed during the present year?
Assuming that the various materials are used in the same proportion as in the years 1915–1916, the amount required for the production of 10,000,000 standard barrels would be as follows:
Barley … … 367,220 tons. Grits … … 21,420 tons. Sugar … … 44,700 tons.
