§ Dr. Summerskill
My right hon. Friend has found it possible to authorise a small but useful increase in sugar allocations to 898 manufacturers, and to allow them to use more flour on current licences to help the Christmas trade. He is also investigating the possibilities of importing biscuits to help in meeting the consumer demand. I am afraid it will not be possible to secure any large scale increase in home production until larger supplies of ingredients are forthcoming.
