§ 21. Mr. Alfred Edwards
asked the Minister of Food what steps are at present being taken to obtain supplies of citrus juices from the U.S.A.; what quantities have been imported in the last 12 months from the U.S.A.; and what quantities have been imported in the last 12 months from other sources.
§ The Minister of Food (Mr. Strachey)
The only kind of citrus juice on which we can afford to spend dollars, is the special type of concentrated orange juice needed for the Welfare Foods Service. It would not be in the public interest to disclose the information asked for in the second and third parts of the Question.
§ Mr. Strachey
We get the maximum quantity we can, both of oranges and orange juice, from non-dollar sources, but a balance must come from dollar areas.
