asked the Secretary of State for Air what was the value of food produced on R.A.F. aerodromes and stations in 1945 and 1946, respectively; and if it is proposed to increase the production for 1948, in view of the food crisis.

The value of food produced by the R.A.F. was £188,700 in 1945 and £95,000 in 1946. In spite of the decrease in the size of the Force, it rose in 1947 to about £125,000 and I am now examining plans for a further increase in 1948.
