Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman tell the House whether the suggestions from the trade were from those who were members of the Association? Has any regard been paid at all to those persons who refuse to join the group, as they might well do?
We had some representations, which we considered, from others than those in the war-time Association, but they were people who have not got a sugar allocation, who were providing synthetic soft drinks which they had started since the beginning of the war, and which had nothing like the nutritional value of those to which the Order applies.
Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman satisfied that the very small amount of sugar upon which he insists as a necessity has any nutritional value at all unless a person drinks about two or three gallons of it?
