asked the Minister of Food if he will publish an analysis of the allocations of refined sugar for manufacturing purposes according to end-product in the years 1947, 1948 and 1949, respectively.

I am afraid I can only give figures for the first two years. We shall not know what total allocations are in 1949 until the year is over.
