HC Deb 26 January 1948 vol 446 c79W
25. Mr. Randall

asked the Minister of Food what are the reasons for the withdrawal of supplies of snoek from the retailers; and for what purpose it is intended to use this commodity.

Mr. Strachey

Supplies have not been withdrawn from retailers. Only a small quantity of the canned snoek purchased by the Ministry has so far arrived in this country. When enough has arrived it will be distributed on the points ration.
