HC Deb 16 December 1949 vol 470 c351W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Food if he will take steps to ascertain how much fruit and vegetables have been removed from Covent Garden market as unsaleable, or unfit for human consumption, since 1st January, 1949.

Dr. Summerskill

I understand that the quantity of fruit and vegetable produce formally condemned at Covent Garden market this year as being unfit for human consumption amounts to approximately 114 tons. With regard to unsaleable produce not formally condemned, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to him by my right hon. Friend on 28th November.
