HC Deb 02 March 1944 vol 397 c1582
60. Fliģht-Lieutenant Teelinģ

asked the Minister of Food why the Co-operative Society was not included in the recent Milk Rationalisation Scheme for Brighton and Hove; and whether he is satisfied that the inconvenience caused by this scheme has been justified by the economies so far obtained.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Mr. Mabane)

In answer to the first part of the Question I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given to my hon. Friend the Member for Bromley (Sir E. Campbell) on 22nd June last. In answer to the second part of the Question my right hon. Friend is satisfied that notwithstanding the initial inconvenience necessarily attaching to these schemes, the economies in man-power and transport secured in Brighton and Hove will be not less valuable than in other parts of the country.
