§ 26. Mr. Sorensen
asked the Minister of Food if he is satisfied, during the condition of emergency, with the arrangements for the supply of vegetables and particularly of potatoes; and what steps he is taking to prevent housewives purchasing more vegetables than are immediately necessary.
§ Mr. Strachey
I am satisfied that everything possible is being done to distribute fairly such supplies of potatoes and other vegetables as can be lifted. A system of rationing for vegetables is not practicable and I think that during the present emergency any restriction on the purchases116W by the public may be left to the good sense of retailers.
