§ 66. Major Digby
asked the Minister of Food what quantity of whale oil was obtained by our whaling fleet during the season which has just ended; and what use has been made of the supplies of oil obtained.
§ Sir B. Smith
No British whaling expedition was possible in the 1944–45 season. The 1945–46 season has not yet ended. I expect to receive all the whale oil produced by the British ships and land station for use with vegetable oils in the manufacture of margarine and cooking fat
