HC Deb 12 May 1947 vol 437 c98W
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.
