HC Deb 03 June 1949 vol 465 c195W
Mr. Warbey

asked the Minister of Food how many licences for the manufacture of sugar confectionery have been granted since the end of the war; and how many of these have been issued to disabled ex-Service men.

Mr. Strachey

I have issued 146 licences to manufacture chocolate and sugar confectionery since the end of the war, 40 to disabled ex-Service men, and the balance to ex-traders who were forced to close down as a result of circumstances directly attributable to the war.
