§ 64. Captain Crowder
asked the Minister of Food if it is his policy to continue to auction stocks of foodstuffs of which he has a monopoly and which are in short supply.
§ Dr. Summerskill
My right hon. Friend is not prepared to say in advance what policy he proposes to adopt in selling the foodstuffs for which he is responsible, but the hon. Member may rest assured that he will do his best to see that essential foods are marketed in such a way as to safeguard the consumer.
