asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, in view of all eventualities, he is satisfied that sufficient food to meet any demand made thereon is stored in Northern Ireland; and, if not, whether he will, at the earliest possible moment, have additional storage accommodation provided in Northern Ireland?

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative; the second part accordingly does not arise.

Will my right hon. and gallant Friend make a fresh survey of the food stored in Northern Ireland?

That would be a considerable thing to do, but we are already keeping in touch with the position day by day, and I can assure my hon. Friend that he need have no fear about the situation in Northern Ireland as far as food is concerned.
