HC Deb 07 March 1945 vol 408 c2029W
Mr. Leslie

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware of certain concoctions advertised as sherry and whisky mac, sold at extortionate prices, containing little sherry or whisky; and whether steps will be taken to put a stop to these frauds.

Colonel Llewellin

Regulation 1 of the Defence (Sale of Food) Regulations, 1943, makes it an offence to supply these products under a label which is misleading as to their nature, substance or quality. The enforcement of this Regulation is in the hands of Food and Drugs authorities, and I am glad to say that recently some offenders have been successfully prosecuted and other prosecutions are pending.
