HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 c189W
76. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Minister of Food why his Department have refused to consider the import of quick-frozen fruits from the U S.A.

Mr. Strachey

For currency reasons I have so far been obliged to confine imports of food from the dollar area to the essential foods which are capable of nation-wide distribution. But I am very ready to believe that there is a considerable future for frozen fruit.
