HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 c188W
67. Mr. Hogg

asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the value of salad as an article of diet, he will make available small quantities of oil other than olive oil for use as salad oil.

Mr. Strachey

Unfortunately, all available edible oil is needed to maintain the fat ration. Otherwise I would most willingly have accepted the hon. Member's suggestion.
