§ Major Boyd - Carpenter
asked "the Minister of Food why offals are less frequently available for sale to the public than they were during the war.
§ Sir B. Smith
Except in London, offal is generally distributed as frequently as during the war years. In London arrangements have been made for the butchers to take offal at about monthly intervals, so that they can get a bigger amount each time and can thus make a better and fairer distribution to their customers. This problem will be appreciated, if it is realised that offal, on average, works out at about three farthings per head of the population per week.
