§ 89. Sir G. Jeffreys
asked the Minister of Food what supplies of sugar are now available from British Colonies and Dependencies; and when he estimates that he will be able to abolish sugar rationing in this country.
§ Mr. Strachey
About 17 per cent. of our total supplies of sugar come from Colonial sources. World supplies are still much below prewar levels, and I am not able to say when I shall be able to take sugar off the ration.
