HC Deb 17 March 1947 vol 435 c15W
73. Mr. Edward Evans

asked the Minister of Food whether the embargo on the transmission of oatmeal from Scotland through the post will now be removed, in view of the difficulty in getting fresh oatmeal in certain areas.

Mr. Strachey

There is no embargo on sending oatmeal by post, but under the Oat Products (Control and Maximum Prices) Order, 1945, no extra charge for delivery may be added to the maximum retail price.
