HC Deb 17 April 1946 vol 421 c2681
59. Mr. Collins

asked the Minister of Food if he will publish a comprehensive list showing ration and points entitlement for children and adults and a schedule of the points value of all foodstuffs now on points; and if he will issue a similar schedule at regular intervals.

Sir B. Smith

A list of retail controlled prices (groceries and provisions) including information about points values, rations and availability of coupons, is already published and is on sale. I will send my hon. Friend a copy.

Mr. Collins

Would my right hon. Friend consider issuing a list which could be fixed up in shops, as it would prove of great convenience to housewives and shopkeepers?

Sir B. Smith

It is one of the conditions that each shopkeeper should display them in his shop.
