HC Deb 15 December 1948 vol 459 c145W
Mr. Challen

asked the Minister of Food to what extent supplies of raisins will be available this year before Christmas.

Mr. Strachey

The allocation of dried fruit designed to meet Christmas requirements was made on 10th October last. It consisted of currants, dates and sultanas. There were no raisins available for distribution then, and the situation has not changed meanwhile.
