HC Deb 05 March 1952 vol 497 c51W
54. Mr. F. Willey

asked the Minister of Food what is the percentage up-take of the rationed foodstuffs, bacon and cheese, for the months December. 1951. and January, 1952.

Major Lloyd George

Deliveries of bacon to wholesalers were 100 per cent. of entitlement for both months and of cheese 100 per cent. for December and 90 per cent. for January. In all cases these figures are as high as, or appreciably higher than, the figures for December, 1950, and January, 1951.
