HC Deb 02 July 1952 vol 503 cc31-2W
37. Captain Duncan

asked the Minister of Food what alteration there will be in the allocation scheme for retailers based on the amount of bananas retailers took in 1939 when the banana trade is handed back to private enterprise.

Dr. Hill

This scheme has been revised on several occasions to bring allocations into line with retailers' current trade, and supplies are available to new entrants. Further changes must depend upon the outcome of the consultations that are now starting on import arrangements.
