§ 72. Mr. J. Morrison
asked the Minister of Food how many anonymous letters are on average received each month by his Department about rationing offences being committed by named individuals; and what action his Department takes over such anonymous communications.
§ Dr. Summerskill
Anonymous letters are received from time to time and contain allegations of offences other than those against the Rationing Orders. No specific record is kept. Any action taken on a letter would depend on its character178W and nature. If it was sufficiently categorical to justify examination (and few anonymous letters are of such value), inquiries would be made.
