HC Deb 21 January 1953 vol 510 cc31-2W
68. Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Food what has been the fall in the price of tea since it was derationed; and to what extent the supply has been adequate to meet all demands.

Major Lloyd George

No exact comparison is possible. Since freedom was restored the average of the prices of the principal branded and packeted teas has fallen slightly. There is a wider range of cheaper blends and ample supplies are available at all prices.
