asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he can furnish an estimate of the number of retailers to whom the Food (Green Onions) Order (Statutory Rules and Orders, 1943, No. 235) applies; and whether he can furnish an estimate of the cost of keeping the records prescribed by the Order?

The answer to the first part of the Question is about 70,000. In reply to the second part of the Question, I regret that I am unable to estimate the cost to a retailer of retaining invoices or of otherwise recording his purchases of green onions.
