HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 c119W
107. Mr. S. Shephard

asked the Minister of Food how much chocolate and other confectionery has been exported during the past 12 months; and if he will give an estimate of the increase in the sweet ration which would result from its retention in this country.

Dr. Summerskill

The total amount of chocolates and sweets authorised to be exported on commercial account during the year ended 31st December, 1946, was 3,700 tons. Converted into terms of an increase in the domestic sweets ration this would amount to about 0.2 ozs. per four weekly ration period.
