§ 50. Mr. Peter Freeman
asked the Minister of Food whether it is his intention to control the price of oranges, bananas and other soft fruits.
§ The Minister of Food (Sir Benjamin Smith)
Yes, Sir. Orders controlling the price of oranges, bananas and other soft fruit are already in existence.
§ Mr. Freeman
Could my right hon. Friend say when we shall get regular sup plies of these commodities, which are now in strong demand among the general public?
§ Mr. Medland
Will take the necessary steps to prevent their disappearance when they are controlled in the same way as eggs disappeared?
§ Dr. Little
Will the Minister give us some understanding that at Christmas he will lower the prices of these fruits to children? I think we owe it to them.
