HC Deb 06 December 1973 vol 865 cc437-8W
Mr. Mudd

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what are the specific causes for the increase in the price of many diabetic foodstuffs.

Mrs. Fenner

Diabetic food prices have been affected by many of the same raw material and other cost increases as manufactured foods generally, but unit costs are, in any case, higher for these foodstuffs which are supplied for a limited market and have short production runs.
