HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 c1255W
Mr. Lunn

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he is aware that a circular has been sent from the L. I. Co-operative Society, at Leeds, to its members regretting they are unable to supply them with sufficient butter, bacon, and other commodities, although they have large quantities in cold store which they are not allowed to sell to them because of Government control; that this society, of over 100,000 members, feel they are being unfairly treated by the Government in having to send food to other districts which they have provided and desire to sell to their own members; and what does he propose to do to release this food for this society's own cooperative members?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Yes, Sir. I have had a copy of this circular brought to my notice, and am having the case investigated. I will communicate the results of the inquiries to the hon. Member.
