HC Deb 09 May 1944 vol 399 c1741W
Mr. Thorne

asked the Minister of Food if he can give any information in connection with the case of the men who were charged with stealing from a factory tea and sugar; and what action was taken in the matter.

Mr. Peake

I have been asked to reply. I assume that my hon. Friend refers to a recent case in which two men were charged with stealing a small amount of tea and sugar, valued at 2s. 6d., the property of their employers. Both men pleaded guilty and they were each fined £10.
