HC Deb 24 April 1964 vol 693 cc215-6W
Mr. A. Lewis

asked the hon. Member for Holland-with-Boston, as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, if he will publish in HANSARD details of the types and amounts of food purchased by the restaurant department since January, 1963, which originated from South Africa.

Sir H. Butcher

100 cases of peach slices, 50 cases of pineapple slices and 25 cases of peach caps were purchased in October, 1963. Oranges are the only other commodity which could be of South African origin, but no specific information is available. Supplies of oranges have to be bought throughout the year, and to be of a certain quality, and the country of origin will therefore vary from time to time.
