asked the Minister of Food whether he is now able to make any relaxation of the present soap rationing system.

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given by my right hon. Friend to the hon. Member for Macclesfield (Air-Commodore Harvey) on 16th May and to his statement in the Adjournment Debate on 3rd June.

Since they were so unsatisfactory, cannot the Parliamentary Secretary add something?

If the hon. Member reads the Adjournment Debate, he will find that the matter was dealt with very thoroughly.

Can the Parliamentary Secretary say what saving of soap resulted from the campaign of the Minister of Fuel and Power for fewer baths?
