HC Deb 31 January 1949 vol 460 cc1370-1
40. Mr. Mitchison

asked the Minister of Food whether any overseas food parcels have recently been sent to old age pensioners in the Brixworth Rural District; and when they will have some.

Dr. Summerskill

Brixworth Rural District receives its share, and in fact, a distribution is in progress of a gift of cooking fat from the New Zealand Patriotic Fund, Wellington. The members of the local council, in conjunction with representatives of the churches and welfare organisations, decide who shall receive a share of this gift, but my hon. and learned Friend may rest assured that the old age pensioners will be very much in their minds.
