HC Deb 01 November 1954 vol 532 cc12-3W
97. Mr. Crouch

asked the Minister of Food whether he will make a statement on the effect of the dock strikes on food supplies.

Dr. Hill

There has been no shortage in the shops of any of the main foods on account of the strikes. But it is probable that some foods—meat and butter in particular—will be adversely affected early in the New Year due to the dislocation in shipping and the delay in turn-round of vessels.
