HC Deb 05 May 1949 vol 464 cc67-8W
Mr. D. Jones

asked the Minister of Food whether in view of the improved sugar position and the approach of the summer, he will now increase the allocation of sugar to manufacturers of soft drinks, to enable such manufacturers to increase the supply of soft drinks available to the public.

Mr. Strachey

I am afraid that as my right hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary explained fully to the House on 28th April, no more sugar can be allowed to the soft drinks industry at present.
