asked the Minister of Food why it is permissible to send a food parcel to Germany containing 4 lb. of rationed goods and 2 lb. of unrationed goods, but not permissible to send a parcel containing 2 lb. of rationed goods and 1 lb. of unrationed goods.

The amount of unrationed foods sent abroad in this way has to be limited in the interests of this country. Four lb. rationed food calls for a bigger personal sacrifice on the part of the sender and therefore provides a greater check on the quantities of unrationed foods sent.


asked the Minister of Food whether the regulations governing the sending of food parcels to Germany are available to the general public.
