Oral Answers to Questions — Food Supplies – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 14th December 1949.
asked the Minister of Food what the results of his inquiries into the quality and sale of coupon-free sweets have been.
Discussions with the trade are still going on, so I can make no statement at present.
Is my right hon. Friend personally satisfied that no ration goods are being diverted into this form of manufacture, and, further, that the material from which coupon-free sweets are being manufactured is fit to eat?
hope that my hon. and gallant Friend realises that I shall receive a report on these discussions and that I cannot comment on the matter yet.
