HC Deb 12 February 1947 vol 433 cc59-60W
68. Mr. G. Wallace

asked the Minister of Food if he will make chocolate biscuits available on the personal sweet ration in order to avoid accumulation of stocks of this commodity in shops at the present time owing to high pointing.

Dr. Summerskill

No, Sir. Chocolate biscuits, as the name indicates, are biscuits and not sweets. The simple remedy of adjusting points values will be adopted at the proper time to regulate stocks.
