HC Deb 01 May 1950 vol 474 c158W
88. Mr. A. Lewis

asked Minister of Food if he is aware of the shortage of split peas; and whether he will take steps to remedy this.

Mr. Webb

Yes. I am afraid yellow split peas are scarce just now and I greatly regret it. There are, however. plenty of green split peas which help to ease the problem. However, my Ministry is in touch with the trade to see if we can help to improve matters
