FOOD CONTROL 1 DEPENDENT UPON SUPPLIES AND PRICES I Addressing1 the Food Officials of Northern Division at Newcastle, Mr. G. H. j Roberts, the Food Controller, said no 6an man wanted to keep on control merely foi the sake of control. Broadly, his policy was this: De-control of any commodity "wouki take place as soon as the supplies of that commodity were so abundant as to justify the hope that if de-control took place, prices would not only fall for the time being, but would remain at a reasonably low level They were de-controlling margarine, and were about to de-control tea because. owing to the foresight of the Ministry, the sup- plies of those articles were now 1-,0 abundant that on de-control taking place they were certain that prices would tend to fall. In the case of margarine they had already fallen. Sugar was at this moment being sold at prices considerably below the world prices, and it was obvious that if control was removed at the present time prices of this vital commodity would simply soar up. In reviewing the food position they must think of the needs of Europe as a whole. The situation in great tracts of Europe was nothing less than tragic. Rumania was starving; Serbia was starving; Austria was starving; and Germany was starving. Ever since the Armistice was signed the Allies had been doing what they could to relieve -the situation; but it was not enough, and the question now arose whether they would be able to get sufficient food to those coun- tries in time to prevent a catastrophe. Clearly we could not complacently watch Europe starving and feed ourselves to the full. That was not the spirit of this nation, which through unselfishness won the war. We were going to help, and if helping meant that the situation here did not im- prove as rapidly as it otherwise would, this country, he was sure, would net grumble. As soon as people here realised the appal- ling seriousness of the situation developing in Europe, they would be the first to call upon the Government to intervene.
