asked the Minister of Food whether he has investigated the complaints of housewives in the borough of Widnes that more food is available in the adjoining industrial borough of St. Helens and also in the non-industrial borough of Southport; and if he will take steps to provide a more even distribution as between these and other areas in Lancashire.
