HC Deb 06 March 1940 vol 358 cc402-3W
Sir H. Morris-Jones

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that sheep's head now costs 8d., and that it is sold without the tongue in many instances, and as this is a frequent form of diet in many households, whether he will go into the question with a view to reduction in the cost?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

I am aware that the maximum retail price for sheep's head is at present 8d. each. It was the intention that the sheep's head should be sold with the tongue and this is the usual practice. An early opportunity will be taken of removing any ambiguity on the point in the maximum price schedules.
