HC Deb 23 February 1948 vol 447 cc285-6W
72. Mr. Sorensen

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware that the retail price of boxed dates is three times dearer than before the war; and whether steps can be taken to secure a reduction in price.

Mr. Strachey

These are privately imported dates, the prices of which I am glad to note have recently tended to fall. We shall shortly be issuing some Ministry-owned dates at much lower prices.
