HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 c193W
95. Mr. Hollis

asked the Minister of Food how much profit has been made from buying New Zealand butter and selling it to other countries at a higher price; and how often, and for what other commodities, his Department undertakes such profit-making transactions.

Mr. Strachey

My Department is continuously purchasing a wide range of commodities other than for distribution in the United Kingdom, but they are all on a non-profit basis.
