HC Deb 22 November 1939 vol 353 c1254W
Sir H. Williams

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether his attention has been drawn to the activities of certain shops in inviting people to register for commodities in respect of which there is no present proposal to ration; and whether this course has received his approval?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

There is no need for anyone to register with his shopkeeper for any food except bacon and ham, butter and sugar. I am asking that registration may be completed for these commodities by to-morrow, 23rd November. I would deprecate action on the part of shopkeepers which may lead people to believe that they have any duty to register now in respect of any other commodity.
