HC Deb 15 November 1939 vol 353 c736W
Mr. Porritt

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether, when rationing of butter comes into force, it will be permissible for friends in the Dominions to send small parcels of butter by post to this country?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

The provisions relating to the rationing of butter have not yet been finally determined, but it is not contemplated that, subject to proper safeguards against abuse, they will prevent persons in the United Kingdom from receiving small parcels of butter by post as presents from friends overseas.
