HC Deb 09 April 1952 vol 498 c2741
54. Mr. F. Willey

asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the improvement in supplies and the prospect of further supplies, he will now restore the meat ration to 1s. 5d.

Major Lloyd George

Not at the moment.

Mr. Willey

Will the right hon. and gallant Gentleman pay some attention to the views of the meat trade, who believe that it is quite possible and proper to raise the meat ration now?

Major Lloyd George

I must also pay attention to the figures which I know, and therefore I am acting on the information which I have, upon which I prefer to act.
