HC Deb 09 November 1950 vol 480 c98W
Mr. Bossom

asked the Minister of Food how much meat, representing rations, he estimates has been lost by the butcher due to its quality being so rough that the housewives will not buy it.

Mr. Webb

Surveys carried out by my Department show that all rationed meat is taken up by consumers and I have no evidence that any meat is lost to butchers because of housewives' refusal to purchase on grounds of quality.
