HC Deb 20 November 1950 vol 481 c3W
Mr. Llewellyn

asked the Minister of Food what are the administrative arrangements needed to enable old age pensioners to exchange sweet points for extra sugar.

Mr. Webb

To enable the option to be exercised I should have to print special coupons and distribute them to local food offices, and the food offices would have to make the necessary exchange of coupons. Records of the coupons exchanged would have to be kept, sent to headquarters and summarised, in order to enable me to save the equivalent quantity of sugar by reducing supplies to sweets manufacturers.
