HC Deb 27 July 1944 vol 402 cc917-8W
Mr. Higgs

asked the Minister of Food what is the post-war policy of his Department in regard to the freeing of milk for the manufacture of chocolate and other sweets.

Colonel Llewellin

The possibility of allocating liquid milk for use in the manufacture of chocolate and other confectionery in the early post-war period will depend upon a number of factors, including the relationship between total milk supply and requirements for direct consumption, and for the manufacture of milk products which may be more urgently required than the products to which my hon. Friend refers. I should, however, like to carry out his suggestion as soon as possible.
