HC Deb 14 December 1939 vol 355 c1301W
Captain Plugge

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether ice-cream is regarded as a luxury or necessity; and what is his policy in respect of furnishing to the trade the necessary ingredients?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I regard ice-cream as a non-essential foodstuff; in the allocation of materials, the ice-cream trade will be treated no less favourably than other trades in non-essential foodstuffs.
