§ 40. Mr. Murray
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that hawkers of wet fish are also selling fat on their rounds; how this fat is allocated to them; and if he will consider putting any extra fats on the individual ration book.
§ Mr. Strachey
No fats are allocated by my Ministry to hawkers of wet fish, for sale off the ration. If my hon. Friend will let me have details. I will have the matter investigated.
§ Mr. Murray
Is the Minister aware that the public in the Brandon area are absolutely mystified how these persons can sell a shilling bag of fat to their customers to fry the fresh fish they buy? I would be glad to give him information about this.
