Alert me about debates like this

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Major Lloyd George):

I have no further information at present to give my hon. Friend regarding the usage of car-parks for black market operations. The total number of prosecutions instituted by the Ministry of Food since the outbreak of war up to 31st December last was 39,927. It would be quite impracticable to distinguish in this large total the number of offences which might be described as black market operations.
