§ 111. Mr. K. Thompson
asked the Minister of Food what is the current output for home consumption of the chocolate and sugar confectionery industry; what proportions are, respectively, chocolate products, sugar goods, and goods made from unallocated materials; and at what level production of each of these categories should stand before any or all could be made available free of ration.
§ Mr. F. Willey
About 350,000 tons. Approximately half is chocolate confectionery, slightly less than half sugar confectionery, and the balance is made from unallocated materials. The level of production of each category which will permit rationing to be ended cannot be predetermined, since it will depend on the demand at the time.
