I SUGAR SUPPLIES ALLEGATION ACAINST LOCAL FIRM The Swansea Food Control Committee met on Wednesday, Col. Sinclair presid- ing. The clerk (Mr. Victor Evans), re- ported that a certain bakery firm in Swansea had applied for 17 tons, 12 cwts., 0. sugar, and in their applicatiop they bad given the names of certain firms from which they had received sugar in 1915. The form which the nrm had signed stated ex- plicitly that any person wilfully making a false statement in respect of any matter specified on the form, was liable on con- viction to a fine of £100 or six months' im- prisonment, or both. The Food Control Office had made inquiries with regard to this particular case in the usual way, and the result was that it was found that the firm received 8i tons only in 1915. The effect was that a false statement of re- turn had been made by this firm for the purpose of obtaining a double amount of sugar. Alderman Hmard; We want to treat this case most drastically. (Hear, hear). Mr. David Griffiths: Have you a list of all the wholesale dealers this firm dealt with? Suppose she (a lady is the head of the firm) did not give them all? The clerk explained that the form signed made it clear that the applicant should give full details of supplies re- ceived in 1915. There were absolutely no mitigating circumstances in this case. It was unanimously decided to prose- cute. The clerk said that certain firms had large quantities of sugar on their premises and refused to sell sugar except to those who had given in sugar cards to them. As the result many small shop-keepers, some of them widows or WIVes who bad their husbands at the front, were losing their customers. The chairman asked the Press to make it clear that a person handing in a sugar card to a firm was not bound to buy a single halfpenny worth of other commodities with that particular firm. A deputation was received from the Master Butchers' Association to discuss the price list for November already de- cided upon by the Committee. The deputation was introduced by the secretary, Mr. A. B. Davies, who, after accepting the list as a whole, proceeded to criticise the prices fixed in respect of ) certain classes of meat. Aid. Hillard: You are not compelled to have so much profit unless you wish it! (Laughter.) Mr. A. B. Davies: I appreciate that. (Renewed laughter.) Mr. Davies, in reply to Ald. Miles, said it was impossible to agree to a reduction in any one, item. Oil Tuesday night a meeting of the trade was held, and the whole matter was thoroughly discussed. The Pesult was that'they decided to apply for increases in prices in certain cases, and he hoped the committee would meet them fairly on the matter. After the deputation* had withdrawn. Aid. ]:bhard.. IllvVI.m Hm,t œ tn-j-.a Hu-, already decidcd upon for beef remain un- changed. (This list has been published in ex ten so). He had spoken to at least eight butchers on the point, and they had said that they had never made such profit in their lives. In fact, they said that had they had these profits in the past, they would have made their fortunes. Mr. Sheehan seconded. This was unanimously agreed to, and with regard to the other objections it was decided not to change the decisions already arrived at, except to agree that legs of pork should be charged for at 1& 6d. per lb.
