HC Deb 26 June 1950 vol 476 cc181-2W
101. Squadron-Leader Cooper

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware that butter is arriving at certain retailers in Ilford in a poor condition, rapidly turns rancid, and is unfit for human consumption; and what steps does he propose to take to rectify this situation.

Mr. Webb

I have made immediate inquiries into this alleged situation, but in none of the responsible trading quarters in Ilford have my officers been able to find any confirmation of the hon. and gallant Member's statement. I can only say, therefore, that I will be glad to investigate any more detailed information he can give.
