§ 97. Mr. D, J. Williams
asked the Minister of Food if he is satisfied that the industrial valleys of South Wales receive an adequate allocation of non-rationed foods as compared with other areas; if he is aware of the widespread dissatisfaction amongst miners and other workers in heavy industries on this matter; and if he will make a statement to allay the doubts that now exist.
§ Mr. Strachey
I have already authorised my divisional food officer in South Wales208W to increase allocations of ingredients for the manufacture of meat products and flour confectionery in districts where such increases can be justified. If my hon. Friend cares to let me have particulars of other shortages, and of the places where they occur, I will willingly make further inquiries.
