HC Deb 01 May 1950 vol 474 c154W
75. Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Food what proportion of the sweet ration is now imported; and how far British manufacturers are capable of producing the entire ration.

Mr. Webb

During the first quarter of this year, imported sweets amounted to about one-fortieth of the present five ounce ration. Production by British manufacturers is slightly below what this ration requires.
