Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Wheat Offals.
Mr. Heskin Mr. Heskin
Mr. Heskin asked the Minister for Agriculture if he is aware that farmers and grain growers find it very difficult and, in some cases, almost impossible to procure wheat offals for stock and pig feeding; and, if so, if he will take steps to ensure that farmers and grain growers will receive at least 65 per cent. of the wheat offals from grain supplied by them to the mills, for feeding purposes, provided application is made by those requiring such offals at the time their wheat is being delivered to the mills.
Dr. Ryan Dr. Ryan
Dr. Ryan: I am aware that there have been complaints of difficulty on the part of feeders in obtaining supplies of wheat offals sufficient for their requirements. I do not consider that it would be feasible to give effect to the Deputy's proposal but I expect that other steps which are about to be taken will enable feeders to obtain much better supplies of wheat offals in the course of the next few weeks.
