Food Control to be Made More Drastic
Mr. Roberts, Food Controller, speaking at Darfield, Yorkshire, said the Cabinet’s decision that the Ministry Food shall continue throughout the coming winter, with full powers, affords convincing evidence the Government’s extermination leave nothing to chance in the food situation.
Undoubtedly control would have to be strengthened and made more drastic. He urged upon local authorities throughout the country the desirability establishing national kitchens wherever possible.
Without being in any way prophetic, he could not honestly hold out any great hope that prices would be lower than those prevailing last winter. The problem supplies did not cause him the same anxiety as the problem of prices. This problem of prices was indeed a terrible one.
