HC Deb 29 March 1944 vol 398 c1433
47. Major Peto

asked the Minister of Food, in view of the shortage of cooking fats, to what extent he is importing to this country olive oil, especially in view of its high nutritive value.

Colonel Llewellin

My Department is importing as much olive oil as is surplus to the local requirements of the producing areas.

Commander Agnew

Could this be made available to fish and chip shops?

Colonel Llewellin

No, I am afraid there is not enough for that.
