HC Deb 06 November 1950 vol 480 c19W
91. Lieut.-Colonel Hyde

asked the Minister of Food when he anticipates that bananas will be available to all sections of the community; and whether he will make a statement.

Mr. Webb

Our imports are still less than half the pre-war quantity, and as a result of extensive storm damage in some of the producing countries, the increased supplies expected are not likely to be available for some time.
