HC Deb 14 May 1952 vol 500 cc1420-1
26. Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

asked the Minister of Food whether he can now make a statement as to the proposed higher fruit content of jam.

Major Lloyd George

No, Sir. I have not yet received the Food Standards Committee's final recommendations.

Lieut.-Colonel Lipton

Does that answer mean the Minister does not propose to make a statement about jam tomorrow? Will he give an assurance that at the earliest possible moment he will do his best to ensure, for the sake of British fruit-growers and consumers, that there is more fruit and less mucilage in jam pots?
