§ 54. Mr. Parker
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he will arrange for those wishing to make jam with soft fruit any week to give up their half pound of jam and receive an extra half pound of sugar in its place?
The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Major Lloyd George)
The suggestion made by my hon. Friend has already been considered and rejected on account of the administrative difficulties to which it would give rise.
§ Mrs. Hardie
Seeing that women are to be denied the right to make jam for themselves, will the Minister ensure that the jam provided by the manufacturers is not adulterated such as it is at present? At the present time some of the jams are just sticky messes.
