§ Mr. Piratin
asked the Minister of Food whether he will publish statistics, collected as a result of wartime rationing schemes, covering costs of distribution of foodstuffs, numbers of people concerned in food distribution, savings made by zoning and nationalising distribution, costs of transport and numbers employed.
§ Mr. Strachey
Information and statistics bearing on these and kindred activities of the Ministry of Food have already 109W been published in "How Britain was Fed in Wartime. Food Control 1939–45." (H.M. Stationery Office. Price 1s.), and I do not think another publication is called for at the present time.
