HC Deb 16 March 1953 vol 512 c1797
3. Mr. Lewis

asked the Minister of Food to state, for the four ration weeks ending February last, the non-take-up of meat, bacon, butter and margarine; and how these figures compare with the four ration weeks ending October, 1951.

Major Lloyd George

For the four weeks ended 21st February the percentages not taken up were nil, 8 per cent., 3 per cent. and 6 per cent., respectively. For meat, this is the same as for the four weeks ended 6th October, 1951; for bacon, more; and for butter and margarine, slightly less.
