HC Deb 08 August 1947 vol 441 c217W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Minister of Food if he has had the opportunity of considering details which have been sent to him concerning the waste of onions, lettuce and other vegetables due to restrictions and regulations; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Strachey

If the hon. Member will let me know which restrictions and regulations are directly responsible for the alleged wastage of onions, lettuce and other vegetables, I will immediately consider the matter. As I have previously explained to the hon. Member, my Ministry controls neither the marketing nor price of lettuces.
