47. Mr. De la Bère
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he will consider taking 50 per cent. as a basis to the end of September, 1939, in respect of sugar for canning factories throughout the country, in place of the basic 50 per cent. for 1938, since 1938 was recorded as an abnormal year?
§ Mr. Lennox-Boyd
To vary the basic year to meet the views of individual industries would create fresh anomalies. Further consideration is, however, being given to the sugar allowance to the canning industry.
