HC Deb 01 December 1952 vol 508 c108W
31. Mr. Nabarro

asked the Minister of Food how many tons of sugar he estimates would have to be purchased per annum from dollar sources to facilitate abolition of sugar and sweets rationing in the United Kingdom.

Major Lloyd George

To lift all controls on all uses of sugar would, we estimate in present circumstances, require additional dollar purchases of about three-quarters of a million tons in the first year and half a million tons thereafter.
