HC Deb 12 July 1944 vol 401 c1736
47. Mr. Hugh Lawson

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware that Wensleydale cheese could be supplied to the Skipton area without using more transport than is at present necessary for supplying imported cheese and that suppliers of cheese have stocks of Wensleydale cheese on their hands; and if he will arrange for the release of this cheese for this area.

Colonel Llewellin

While I sympathise with anyone cut off from the cheese he likes, I am afraid that stocks of Wensleydale cheese are no more than sufficient to meet requirements in the area in which it is made.
