§ 25. Mr. Peter Freeman
asked the Minister of Food what increases in the allocation of sugar, fats and meat have recently been made to each of the areas in South Wales; whether this increase is now sufficient to raise them to the normal standard that has been in operation all over the rest of the country; and what are the approximate total amounts per week that such increases involve.
§ Mr. Strachey
As the list of areas is rather long, I will with permission send it to the hon. Member. The increases do bring South Wales up to the standard of the country as a whole. They amount to about eight tons of sugar for making cakes, 14 tons of fat for cakes and for fish frying weekly, and two tons a week of manufacturing meat.
