Mr. De la Bère
asked the Minister of Food whether, in connection with the process of packing fruit under the new system of quick-freezing, whereby the public were able to buy fresh strawberries, raspberries and other fruits during the out-of-season periods, it is the intention of the Government to allow those factories that have made the necessary preparations for development to continue the quick-freezing of fruit.
§ Sir B. Smith
No, Sir. We shall need all the soft fruit we can get this year to increase the supply of the more popular types of jam.
