§ Colonel J. R. H. Hutchison
asked the Minister of Food whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that certain foods, notably raisins, are going bad in the shops because housewives consider they are too 124W highly rated at their present points value; and what action he proposes to take to rectify this.
§ Dr. Summerskill
I have no reason to think that any points foods are going bad in retail shops because they are considered by housewives to be too highly rated at their present points value. The last release of raisins was made in January at a points value of four per lb. and they should be in satisfactory condition. If the hon. and gallant Member has any reliable information to the contrary I should be glad if he would communicate with me.
