asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether his attention has been called to cases of grains and foodstuffs damaged by war action or otherwise being sold above the controlled price for undamaged goods; and whether he will take any action?

No, Sir; but if my hon. and gallant Friend will give me any information in his possession, I shall be glad to have inquiries made.

Does the hon. Gentleman mean that he has no knowledge of any action in the civil courts?

I mean that my attention has not been called to cases coming within the point raised in the Question.
