HC Deb 02 August 1951 vol 491 c280W
Mr. Aitken

asked the Minister of Food what quantities of dried fruit imported by his Department have become unfit for human consumption and have been sold in the last six months to poultry and other livestock keepers for feed; and at what price.

Mr. Webb

766 cwt., at an average price of 11s. 7d. per cwt. ex store, in the six months ended 14th July. This represents only.09 per cent. of our imports in the same period.
