HC Deb 24 July 1941 vol 373 cc1071-2W
Mr. Wootton-Davies

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food if he is satisfied with the distribution of jam in view of the fact that some retailers are still unable to fulfil the requirements of their registered customers for the May and June supply while other retailers in the same district have enough stocks for many months to come; and if he will take steps to remedy this anomaly?

Major Lloyd George

Very few complaints of the nature to which my hon. Friend refers have been received in the past few weeks. All retailers have been advised that if they experience any difficulty in obtaining sufficient supplies to meet the requirements of their registered customers they should write to my Department. If they do this it is usually possible to ensure that supplies are made available to them without delay.
