HC Deb 27 March 1950 vol 473 c22
29. Mrs. Castle

asked the Minister of Food what dollar expenditure is involved in the sale in this country of Coca-cola.

Mr. Webb

The Coca-cola sold in this country is manufactured entirely here and there is no dollar expenditure on the ingredients.

Mrs. Castle

Does my right hon. Friend's reply mean that not only is there no dollar expenditure, but that there is no dollar loss through royalty payments or through the transfer of earnings by the company in this country?

Mr. Webb

That is another Question. I would like it to be put on the Order Paper.

Brigadier Rayner

Is not there a British product called Pepsi-cola?

Air-Commodore Harvey

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that Coca-cola is considerably improved by a nip of gin?
