HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 cc1248-9W
Colonel Baldwin-Webb

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster the stocks of currants and seedless raisins now in this country; and whether any further part thereof will be liberated for the making of Christmas fare?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I am unable to give the information asked for in the first part of the question, but my Department is not holding back stocks; as regards the second part of the question, releases of these goods are constantly being made, and there is every expectation that the Christmas demand will be satisfied.
