HC Deb 23 September 1943 vol 392 c432W
Colonel Carver

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, in view of the small honey harvest and consequent expected loss of bees during the coming winter, he will authorise increased sugar allowance per bee colony for autumn and spring feeding?

Mr. Mabane

It has recently been announced that in view of the difficult seasonal conditions, it has been decided to increase the allowance of sugar to beekeepers in cases of need by 5 lb. per colony. The additional allowance may be taken either as an addition to the winter allowance of 10 lb. per colony or as an addition to the spring allowance of 5 lb. per colony, and is available on application to the Food Office concerned at any time up to 31st May, 1944.
