asked the Minister of Food if he will take steps to ensure that, in order to prevent misunderstanding, the reasons for the export of beer, biscuits, chocolate, etc., are conveyed to consumers in foreign countries, possibly by means of explanatory printed labels on each packet, tin or bottle.

Yes. We have already sent very clear explanations to our representatives abroad, and shall send further explanations. I should think the proceedings of this House today and tomorrow will also provide very cogent explanations. My hon. Friend's suggestion of explanatory labels is an alternative one, but I fear, very difficult to apply.
