HC Deb 09 April 1952 vol 498 cc244-5W
Mr. Hurd

asked the Minister of Food what quantity of cheese is required to meet the 12-ounce ration of cheese allowed to farmworkers in lieu of canteen meals; and what proportion this bears to total supplies of rationed cheese.

Major Lloyd George

About 10,500 tons a year. This was equivalent to 5½ per cent. of the total supply in 1951.
