HC Deb 10 May 1944 vol 399 c1926W
Mr. Murray

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware that the Brandon and Byshottles Co-operative Society and others are being placed in a difficult position owing to an invitation for traders to register for pre-packed flour in 1941, being taken to mean flour which was packed by manufacturers and others prior to the time of sale; that the forms were duly completed, but co-operative societies now find it impossible to obtain supplies of flour bags, grease-proof paper, cap paper and cereal-fruit bags because they must be licensed as pre-packers before a permit can be issued; and, as this is causing inconvenience to the trade and traders, will he give permission for the above items to be purchased in the normal way.

Mr. Mabane

I am making very full inquiries into this matter and will communicate with the hon. Member as soon as they have been completed.
