Vol. 192 No. 3

Ceisteanna—Questions. Oral Answers. - Disposal of Wheat Crop.


andMr. McQuillan asked the Minister for Agriculture what body or organisation is responsible for the disposal of this year's wheat harvest as to (a) the millable wheat and (b) the unmillable wheat.

Licensed millers are required to purchase and mill home-grown millable wheat up to the prescribed percentage of their home-grown wheat quotas.

There is no control over the purchase or sale of unmillable wheat, but a market has been provided for it at a guaranteed price related to its value as a feeding stuff.
