But the reasons are entirely unconvincing. Would not my right hon. and gallant Friend agree that the housewife can be relied upon not to buy these fruits if they are too expensive? If they are sufficiently cheap, should she not have an opportunity of buying them?
I have nothing whatever to add to the answer which my hon. Friend gave, except to repeat what he said in the second paragraph—that it is almost impossible to have them without serious abuse.
I will very gladly talk this matter over with my hon. Friend, because it is a very complicated matter not in the least suitable to be dealt with by Question and answer.
