HC Deb 01 November 1954 vol 532 c28
46. Mr. Jeger

asked the hon. Member for Woolwich, West, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, how many pats of butter sold in the Members' Tea Room make up 1 lb.; and at what price he buys the butter.

Mr. W. A. Steward

Approximately 80 to the lb. It is not the policy of the Kitchen Committee to disclose prices paid for commodities.

Mr. Jeger

On what date was the number 80 to the lb.? My general information is that on the day that this Question appeared on the Order Paper the size of the pat of butter was increased.

Mr. Steward

I can only give the hon. Member the information which has been given me from a reliable quarter.
