HC Deb 28 July 1943 vol 391 c1591W
Sir H. Williams

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food what quantities of sardines in 5 kilo containers there are in the country; and, having regard to the prohibition of the purchase and sale of such sardines in the Emergency Powers (Defence) Food (Canned Fish) Order (S.R. & O., No. 962 of 1943), in what way it is proposed to deal with these sardines?

Mr. Mabane

I have no information as to the quantity of sardines in 5 kilograms containers still in this country. The prohibition on sales is subject to directions which may be given by my Noble Friend and the effect of the Order is to require holders of stocks to apply for authority before disposing of them.
