SUGAR FOR JAM-MAKING. LORD RHONDDA HOPES SUPPLY MAY BE AVAILABLE. Lord Balfour of Burleigh in the House of Lords called attention to re- cent announcements that no sugar would be allowed to private growers of fruit in the present year for the pur- pose of i:ini-making, and asked if it was not possible to modify this policy. Ho askod for the iijiuree as to the available supply of sugar and the use that\ was being made of it, and said many people were apprehensive that more sugar was being used for the manufacture of beer and confectionery than was absolutely necessary. Lord Rhondda said he could not give the statistics relating to sugar at pre- sent, but at a later date ho might be able to do so. The advico given by the chairman of the Royal Commission on Sugar Supply that people should en- deavour to save sugar for the purpose of jam-making did not represent any official decision that had been arrived at on the matter. It was merely a note of warning'in view of eventuali- ties that might arise. Whether it would be possible to make allotments j of sugar to those who grew their own fruit or not must depend on the stocks l available at the time. He was discus- sing the matter with the chairman of the Royal Commission, and he hoped the supply would permit of a reason- able allotment being made, though he could not at present :ive any definite promise. He would do whatever was possible.
