HC Deb 24 January 1940 vol 356 c583
59. Mr. Jackson

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will arrange for an extra ration of sugar to be made available for purchasers of homegrown cooking apples, in the same way as it has been allowed to buyers of foreign marmalade oranges?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Large quantities of sugar were made available last autumn for the preservation of home-grown fruits. I am not yet in a position to state what sugar will be available for the preservation of the home fruit crop during the coming season, but I can assure the hon. Member that the importance of the matter is fully realised.
