HC Deb 07 February 1945 vol 407 c2074
53. Mr. Purbrick

asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the fact that many cities, such as Liverpool, manufacture ice-cream sufficient to meet all the requirements of their area, he will introduce a system of zoning, as he has done in many other instances, so as to save transport which would otherwise be necessary to carry the ice-cream from London and/or other centres.

Colonel Llewellin

I hope to introduce a scheme for the utmost economy in distribution as soon as possible.
