HC Deb 15 March 1950 vol 472 cc1082-3
48. Mr. Turton

asked the Minister of Food what quantities of chocolate have been imported from Czechoslovakia in the last six months.

Mr. Webb

Five hundred and forty-three tons of chocolate were imported by private traders from Czechoslovakia in the six months ended on 31st January.

Mr. Tinton

When the Minister reviews the sugar position will he review also his policy of allowing sugar to be exported to the Continent, when it could be used in chocolate manufacture in this country? Will he allow more sugar to be used by home manufacturers for the manufacture of sweets and chocolate?

Mr. Webb

If that is the fact, I should be very glad to look into it.
