§ 28. Mr. Swingler
asked the Minister of Food why it is permissible to send a food parcel to Germany containing 4 lb. of rationed goods and 2 lb. of unrationed goods, but not permissible to send a parcel containing 2 lb. of rationed goods and 1 lb. of unrationed goods.
§ Dr. Summerskill
The amount of unrationed foods sent abroad in this way has to be limited in the interests of this country. Four lb. rationed food calls for a bigger personal sacrifice on the part 15W of the sender and therefore provides a greater check on the quantities of unrationed foods sent.
§ 29. Mr. Swingler
asked the Minister of Food whether the regulations governing the sending of food parcels to Germany are available to the general public.
