HC Deb 11 April 1945 vol 409 c1822
49. Dr. Little

asked the Minister of Food whether, owing to the constant demand for jellies by sick persons, invalids and delicate children, he will authorise the early resumption of their manufacture in order to meet a pressing need.

Mr. Mabane

No, Sir. I regret that the supply position does not yet permit a resumption of manufacture.

Dr. Little

As sugar is bring assigned for less necessary needs, will the Minister grant sufficient sugar to allow a certain percentage of jellies to be manufactured to meet a pressing public demand?

Mr. Mabane

There is every desire to resume manufacture as soon as the supply position permits.
