"Simply Quibbling/' -0 Mr. Clynne Jones and Sugar for Breweries. At the meeting of the Food Control Committee last night, the Mayor presid- ing, a telegram from the Food Ministry [ was read in reply to the committee's question as to whether they had powers in making investigations to inspect manu- facturers' invoice as to quantities of sugar supplied in 1915. The Ministry replied to the effect that if the Commit- tee was satisfied that inaccuracies were deliberate representations should be made to the Divisional Food Controller, who would consider what further steps could be taken. A long list of applications for supplies of sugar from cake manufacturers, ice- cream vendors, confectioners, were dealt with. Sugar for the Brewers. I An interesting discussion took place I during the consideration of the applica- I tion of Messrs. Buckleys Brewery for a supply of sugar. In the first instance Messrs. Buckleys applied for 324 cwts for the year, but the committee regarding this as excessive, the application was referred back, and they now asked for 81 cwts. The Shops Inspector (Mr W. A. Davies) reported that he had inspected the in- voices of the Company on sugar supply in 1915, and from what he saw they were entitled to the amount now asked for. In reply to a question as to what quan- tity of sugar he saw at the Brewery the Inspector said it was only a kind of black stuff which could not be used for domes- tic purposes. Some members of the Committee were of opinion that Messrs Buckley should not receive such a large amount, and the Mayor directed the Committee's attention to the Inspector's statement. Mr. Glynne Jones: It is simply quibbling to say that the sugar supplied to brewers is not fit for human consumption. It is a well known fact that brewers are still making use of sugar which could be util- ized by the people of this country. I I don't think it altogether fair that the Brewery should receive all this quantity while we have already been cutting down supplies to the poorer people. The Deputy Mayor (Coun. Dan Wil- liams) The Government have limited the manufacture of beer so that Messrs. Buckley can only brew a stipulated quan- tity, and I take it they are perfectly en- titled to the necessary supplies of sugar. It was ultimately decided to grant 81 cwts. Butter Prices Rushed up. When the meat, butter and milk prices came up for consideration it was decided that a special conference be held with the dealers. The Mayor stated that on Saturday while butter was scarce at the market one of the multiple shops was alleged to have rushed up the prices to 2s. lOd. per lb. He thought this should be referred to the Food Controller. It transpired that the quality of the butter sold at the shop referred to was not scheduled and the committee decided to ask that this particular class of butter should be included in the schedule, and further the suggestion of the Mayor that the case referred to should be brought to the notice of the Ministry of Food.
