HC Deb 15 July 1941 vol 373 c477W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, in cases where people have not received their May/June jam rations owing to the inability of the retailer yet to supply them he will allow all jam rations due up to the end of June to be sold without the additional amount per pound just imposed?

Major Lloyd George

No, Sir. To judge by the number of complaints received, cases in which retailers have not yet been able to supply all their customers with their jam rations for May and June must be very few indeed, and the increase in price to the consumer under the new Order is too insignificant to justify the administrative cost and labour that would be necessary to give effect to my hon. Friend's proposal.
