HC Deb 06 March 1941 vol 369 c1047W
Sir R. Gower

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether it is proposed to continue to import oranges; and will he consider whether the importation of orange juice would equally well answer requirements besides economising shipping?

Major Lloyd George

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative; as regards the second part of the Question, my Noble Friend is advised that the importation of highly concentrated orange juice would economise in shipping space, but there are other considerations involved, into which he is at present inquiring.
