§ Mr. Teeling
asked the Minister of Food why unlicensed personnel are allowed to operate candy floss machines in Brighton; to what extent they are using sugar since candy floss has been released from points; how many of those operating candy floss machines in other seaside resorts have been prosecuted; and for what offence.
§ Mr. Strachey
The people who have been detected operating candy floss machines in Brighton without a manufacturer's licence have been using lemonade crystals, which are unrationed, and they have been instructed to obtain licences. Since candy floss was derationed there have been no prosecutions.
