§ 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.
