HC Deb 05 August 1943 vol 391 cc2489-90W
Mr. Sorensen

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food if he will arrange for a certain amount of tinned foods to be packed into smaller tins, so that those with smaller incomes can more economically distribute their points?

Mr. Mabane

Arrangements are made as far as practicable to ensure that a reasonable proportion of canned foods are packed in smaller sizes. My hon. Friend will appreciate, however, that the small sizes are more extravagant than the larger sizes in tinplate, labour and transport.
