Mr. F. GREEN
asked the Food Controller if he has seen that 1,000 Cornish tin-miners marched 16 miles from St. Just to Penzance and back to demonstrate their indignation at the existing prices of milk and butter, and that at the annual meeting of the Bristol Dairymen's Association allegations were made that one company, with the consent of his Department, was permitted to buy immense quantities of milk, reduce the same to powder, and export it to Germany.; and whether he will give the name of that company and say what quantities they have purchased in the last three months in the counties of Somerset, Devon, and Cornwall?
§ Mr. McCURDY
My attention has been drawn to the demonstration of Cornish tin-miners referred to, but I have no information as to the allegations contained in the second part of the Question. If my hon. Friend will give me more detailed information, I will cause enquiries to be made.
