§ 62. Mr. Frankel
asked the Minister of Food how much salami or cervelat sausage has become unfit for human consumption and what was the reason.
§ The Minister of Food (Colonel Llewellin)
Up-to-date 64 tons out of 646. This was due to the lengthy storage period which was incurred owing to the somewhat slow demand for this specialised product.
§ Mr. Frankel
Would the Minister consider returning these products to the control of the comestible industry where it was before? At present, control is in the hands of people who do not understand the sale of these meats.
§ Colonel Llewellin
We have had more of these specialised products offered to us than we imported before the war, and that is why this position arose.
