Winston Churchill disapproves of sweet rationing

Factory output diminishes, as Uboat attacks on merchant shipping seriously limit the supply of imported goods. Sugar and cocoa become hard to access. Nevertheless, Prime Minister Churchill wants to avoid rationing sweets, as he feels it will lower citizen morale. Despite his best intentions, confectionery is  rationed from 1942, and will not finally come “off ration” until 1953.
