asked the Minister of Food how he will relate the increase in the price of meat to the meat ration.
asked the Minister of Food what changes he is making in the money value of the meat ration so as to prevent the rise in price reducing the quantity permitted on the ration; and when these changes will take effect.
Details will be announced later.
Can my right hon. Friend say when that is likely to be, and will she try her utmost to make it as soon as possible so that both the consumers and the butchers will know where they stand in this matter?
The answer to the latter part of the question is "Yes, Sir."
Could the right hon. Lady give an absolute assurance that none of these changes will result in any reduction in the actual quantity of meat permitted?
I think so, yes. [HON. MEMBERS: "You think so?"] I can give the assurance.
