HC Deb 25 July 1952 vol 504 c66W
Mr. Baker

asked the Minister of Food in what currency the tinned fruits now available in this country, imported from Formosa, and marked Taiwan, China, were paid for.

Major Lloyd George

My hon. Friend is presumably referring to some canned pineapple which my Department purchased from Formosa (Taiwan). Payment was made in sterling to a Formosan account.
