HC Deb 20 December 1973 vol 866 c355W
41. Mrs. Joyce Butler

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will subsidise the production of a national wholemeal loaf to prevent malnutrition of the elderly and of families on limited incomes.

Mrs. Fenner

No. I see no need for this. The latest results of the National Food Survey show that the energy value and nutrient content of the diet of all income groups remain substantially greater than those recommended for a healthy population by the Department of Health and Social Security.
