In the interval between two debates on the War Damage

Bill Sir Kingsley Wood asked the House for two items of credit, L60o millions for the current financial year and £1,000 millions for the coming financial year. He said that it was imperative to curtail civilian consumption. But Major Lloyd George, whom everyone is glad to see at the Ministry of Food, is embarrassed by a barrage of questions on the distribution of existing food. Mr. Hudson is also being attacked for failure to understand the yeomen of England and reserve adequate agricultural labour.
