§ 14. Mr. Nabarro
asked the Minister of Food the number of persons employed by his Department in the administration of sugar rationing; and what financial saving, in respect of salaries and overheads, would result from abolition of such rationing.
§ Major Lloyd George
About 300 staff are employed. If sugar rationing were abolished, the salary saving would be about £100,000. Other savings cannot be estimated.
§ Mr. Nabarro
Flushed with the great success of his earlier de-rationing measures, will my right hon. and gallant Friend bear in mind that the greatest single service he can perform to the housewives of this country is to de-ration sugar at the earliest possible moment, and further to extinguish himself and his Ministry?
