HC Deb 29 April 1920 vol 128 c1445W

asked the Minister of Food whether, seeing that the export of sweetened condensed milk without licence is prohibited and that it is almost impossible to get licences for the export of this article, of which there is a considerable glut at the present time in this country in consequence of this, business is being lost to the United Kingdom and going to America and elsewhere?


As the result of a recent investigation undertaken by the Ministry of Food, there does not appear to be a large surplus of sweetened condensed milk in this country. A further inquiry is, however, now being undertaken, and if the result warrants it, favourable consideration will be given to allowing export to take place within certain limits.
