In South Lancashire, as in other parts of the country, the shortage of foodstuffs was in part artificially maintained and prices were kept higher than the situation justified ... Potatoes were deliberately shipped abroad, presumably with the intention of heightening local demand for wheat flour, which was not normally consumed by the labouring classes on Lancashire, the staple bread being 'jannock' made from oatmeal, failing which potatoes were used.

“On Tue 2nd Nov, a specially arranged planning committee will take place to consider the Galleries planning application and any comments or objections received.” (M.E.N.)
