HC Deb 23 April 1951 vol 487 c2W
23. Mr. Baker White

asked the Minister of Food if he is now in a position to make a further statement on tinplate supplies for fruit and vegetable canning in the 1951 season.

Mr. F. Willey

The fruit and vegetable canners will receive approximately the same number of cans during the second and third quarters of this year as during the corresponding periods last year. If the new tinplate mill comes into production in time, there should be an improvement in the fourth quarter.
