HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 c226W
64. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Food when a fresh delivery of lemons is expected; and what allocations per head he will make and at what price

Mr. Strachey

The first of our supplies of lemons are arriving now and are being distributed in certain areas on the basis of one third of a pound per head. The maximum retail price is 6d. per lb., except in certain districts in the North of Scotland, where it is 6Jd., to cover the exceptional transport costs.
