HC Deb 24 March 1943 vol 387 c1646W
Major Procter

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food why he proposes to close 120 out of 240 biscuit factories when the Cake and Biscuit Manufacturers Wartime Alliance claim that 5,262 workers could be released without closing one factory, while the Government scheme would release 5,137?

Mr. Mabane

No such proposal has ever been made or contemplated by my Noble Friend.
