§ Mr. Harvey
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food 906W whether the need of reserving a sufficient quantity of the fruit-juice imported from America for the use of the general population, especially young children and invalids, has been kept in mind by the Ministry; and, in view of the recent allocation of a large quantity of imported apple-juice for cider manufacturers, what amount will be available for general use?
Major Lloyd George
Yes, Sir, a substantial proportion of imported apple juice will be available to the general population, including children, and to invalids through hospitals. In addition, there will be considerable supplies of citrus juices from Empire sources which will be generally available in the form of soft drinks.
