§ Mr. Lewis
asked the Minister of Food to set out the figures upon which his calculation of the take-up of the bacon ration in the last monthly period is based; and if he will, in particular, show the highest and the lowest percentage comprised in the cross section and indicate from which areas or classes of persons they were derived.
§ Major Lloyd George
The calculation was based on a comparison between total deliveries to wholesalers, amounting to 35,300 tons, and total entitlement, provisionally estimated at 38,800 tons for the period. I regret it is not possible to analyse these figures by areas or classes of persons.
