HC Deb 18 June 1951 vol 489 c1W
20. Mr. Teeling

asked the Minister of Food whether he will prohibit the sale of rock without the collection of personal points at the South Bank Exhibition, in view of the fact that the selling of this confectionery off the ration both at the Exhibition Site and by itinerant traders on the south coast beaches is causing loss and hardship to recognised confectionery traders who depend on the summer seasonal business.

Mr. Webb:

These sales are already prohibited, and my Department will welcome any evidence which enables action to be taken against offenders. If the hon. Member has such evidence I should be obliged if he would let me have it.
