HC Deb 22 January 1947 vol 432 c221
63. Mr. Baker White

asked the Minister of Food if he has yet taken a decision whether the trading licence of the Colchester Co-operative Society is to be revoked, subsequent upon its conviction for black market offences.

Mr. Strachey

I do not normally revoke licences for a first offence, and shall not do so in this case; but the Society has been warned that I shall consider revoking its licence at once if there is any further conviction against it or any of its employees.
