§ 50. Mr. Osborne
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has considered the advisability of including tobacco among the expenditure items in the Marshall Plan; and will he make a statement on its comparative importance with cooking fats, feedingstuffs, and wheat.
§ Mr. Dalton
Tobacco was included in the Paris report. The answer to the second part of the question is, "No, Sir."
§ Mr. Osborne
Has the right hon. Gentleman any discretion; and when the Marshall Plan is brought into being, will he remember that cooking fats are more important for the housewife than tobacco?
