HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 cc117-8W
102. Mrs. Mann

asked the Minister of Food if he will consider raising the quality of British margarine to that of the near-butter standard of Norwegian margarine.

Dr. Summerskill

I understand that the present arrangement in Norway is to sell no butter separately but to combine it with the margarine. I could blend butter with margarine, but of course, only by withdrawing or reducing the butter ration. I think a majority of consumers would wish the present clear distinction to be maintained between these two commodities.
