HC Deb 20 October 1953 vol 518 cc250-1W
83. Mr. R. Robinson

asked the Minister of Food whether all controls have now been removed on the importation of canned grapefruit segments coming from the Colonies.

Major Lloyd George

I have decided to abolish the control of canned grapefruit, pineapple and mandarin oranges after the end of the year. My Department will make no further purchases. A statement about imports in 1954 will be made later.
