§ 48. Mr. Marples
asked the Minister of Food whether he will consider replacing the cooking compound by pure lard; and making a slight increase in this ration.
§ Mr. Strachey
We cannot get enough lard to replace compound cooking fat entirely. But when the Argentine supplies arrive, which will be shortly, we shall be able to replace some of it. I am afraid there is no prospect at present of an increase in the cooking fat ration.
