HC Deb 17 April 1946 vol 421 cc2681-2
61. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Food whether it is his intention to allow an extra ration of sweets for children to coincide with the Victory celebrations of 8th June

Sir B. Smith

Much as I should like to accept my hon. Friend's suggestion, I regret that the present shortage of raw materials makes it impossible for me to do so.

Mr. Freeman

Would my right hon. Friend consider allocating some of the large stocks now held by the brewing industry for such a purpose? It would be very popular in these days.
