The author comments on the reluctance of most politicians in Great Britain to make commitments and their lack of willingness to express opinions. The author points out that the inertia in government inhibits change in priorities with regards to food shortages. According to the author, legislative programmes tend to run their course even when circumstances show them to be the opposite of what is needed.
