HC Deb 19 November 1941 vol 376 c344W
Captain Gammans

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, where a conviction has been secured against retailers of substituted foodstuffs, for misrepresentation, action is taken against the makers and wholesalers; and, if not, why not?

Major Lloyd George

So far as I am aware no proceedings against a retailer for misrepresentation have yet been taken under the Food Substitutes (Control) Order. In cases where a retailer is convicted under the Order for misrepresentation for which the wholesaler and maker are also responsible, I agree with my hon. and gallant Friend that proceedings should also be taken against them.
