§ 40. Mr. Silkin
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, 450 as the withdrawal of the allowance of sugar for making jam from purchased fruit will inflict hardship on people of small earnings by compelling them to buy manufactured jam at a higher cost without necessarily bringing about a saving in the consumption of sugar, he will give further consideration to this question?
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Mr. Boothby)
My Noble Friend has this matter under consideration, and it is hoped to make an announcement on it at an early date.
