asked the Minister of Food what quantities of milk were used in the making of plastics in each of the years 1939 to 1946 inclusive; and what is the weekly amount now processed in this way.

Some six to eight million gallons of skimmed milk were used in 1938 in the manufacture of casein for plastics. I have no precise information of the quantities used in 1939. No milk has been used for plastics since the early days of 1940.
