§ 55. Mr. Boothby
asked the Minister of Food whether he will in future arrange for key openers to be provided with the quarter pound tins of sardines imported into this country.
§ Sir B. Smith
I am afraid that it is not possible to arrange at present for a key opener to be provided with each tin of sardines. I hope, however, that keys may soon be available.
§ Mr. Boothby
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a large number of tins of sardines recently imported are still on the shop shelves owing to the natural reluctance of the housewives of this country to attack them with a hatchet?
