asked the Minister of Food what percentage of imported feedingstuffs are obtained from countries of Eastern Europe.
Last year's figure was 29 per cent.
In view of the conditions justifying the great re-armament programme, does not the Minister consider it is more desirable to endeavour to get this feeding material from the Empire?
We try to get these important feedingstuffs from wherever we can get them. If we can get them from the Empire, then indeed we shall, but we need to get them from Eastern Europe and shall continue to do so.
But cannot the right hon. Gentleman get more from the Empire?
