HC Deb 13 December 1939 vol 355 cc1204-5
72. Mr. A. Jenkins

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he can state the total quantity of unsuitable butter issued and returned in South Wales and Monmouthshire to date?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Since my reply to the hon. Member's question of 8th November no claims for returned butter have been received in the Department from South Wales and Monmouthshire, and I am informed that whilst there have been some cases of return which have been handled by the area distribution officer these have been in respect of small quantities.

79. Sir T. Moore

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether in the pool butter sold to the public there is any admixture of Russian butter; and if so, to what extent?

Mr. Morrison

No, Sir. I would add that there is no "pooling" of butter under control apart from the blending normally carried out by the trade.

Sir T. Moore

In view of the noise in this part of the House, might I ask the right hon. Gentleman to say again whether there is any question of any admixture of Russian butter?

Mr. Morrison

No, Sir.
