Major Lloyd George:

The facts in this case are already being investigated. The retailers of the coloured sugar sold as lemonade powder were prosecuted by the Southwark Food Control Committee under the Rationing Order for supplying sugar without authority, for selling sugar at a price in excess of the maximum, and for entering into a fictitious transaction. These cases were heard at the same court and at the same time as the prosecution by the borough council. It is incorrect to say that M. Saper, Ltd., hold a priority permit from the Ministry of Food, but the amount of their permits for sugar for manufacturing purposes is being reviewed.
