HC Deb 01 April 1941 vol 370 cc867-8W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is satisfied that a proper balance is being maintained of supplies of unrationed foodstuffs to large and small retailers, respectively?

Major Lloyd George

Unrationed foodstuffs are in general being distributed by wholesalers to retailers on the basis of the volume of pre-war trade, subject to some adjustment to meet changes of population. I have no evidence to suggest that there is discrimination in favour of large retailers.
