I FOOD DICTATOR I
I FOOD DICTATOR. I No Appointment, But Pro- phets in Agreement. I Sir George Saltmarsh is regarded in alii the Sunday newspapers as the gentleman likely to be chosen Food Controller. Some journals go the length of announcing his t appointment as a certainty, and give! sketches of his career. It was rumoured' on Saturday that lie had been appointed, j but the report could find no confirmation. J Sir George was one of the first men of business experience to be called in by the: Government on the outbreak of war, and, though he is littie known to the general j public, tho advice and assistanoe he has been able to give on questions relating to wheat supplies and shipping have been j of incalculablce service to the country. indeed, it was mainly for his valuable work in advising the Board-of Agriculture ihat the honour of knighthood was coix- 1 lerrsd upon him some 18 months ago. I I A man of great enargy, he is 47 years of c'ige. He has been associated all his life with the firm of Messrs. Usborne and Son, I grain merchants and wheat importers, and in 1898 he succeeded his father as its senior partner. He was an original mem- < ber of the Port of London Authority, and has taken a prominent part in the de- velopment of the port, and particularly in questions concerning the grain trade. For many years he has been connected with the Baltic and Corn Exchange, and during the war he has become a director of the one and has been on the board of the other. His work for the Government, in addition to that for agriculture, has been percformed ohiefly as a member of Mr. Bonar Law's Committee, the Indian Wheat Committee and the Wheat Com- mission. He is greatly admired in White- hall (says the "Observer "), and one who knows him intimately, speaking of his! Work, described him as a man of great vigour who has been successful in every- thing he has taken up." If the appointment should be given to Sir George Saltmash it is understood that Mr. Runciman will answer questions mii- i cerning the department in the House of Commons. -r-- I
