HC Deb 19 June 1941 vol 372 c822
64. Mr. T. Smith

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he can do anything to en sure a more adequate distribution of unrationed foods in Normanton and other districts?

Major Lloyd George

Many of the more popular of the unrationed foods are in short supply, and I have no information to suggest that the shortage at Normanton is more acute than elsewhere. If my hon. Friend has any particulars which he can send to me I shall be glad to give the matter further consideration.

Mr. Smith

Is the hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that some dealers can get certain commodities and that others cannot?

Major Lloyd George

I will look into that.
