§ 63. Mr. Keeling
asked the Minister of Food whether he has taken any action to prevent the sale of a ration of three ounces of cheese weekly since the House resolved to pray for the revocation of Statutory Instrument No. 470.
§ 65. Sir H. Williams
asked the Minister of Food when he proposes to lay the new cheese rationing Order.
§ 66. Mr. Hamilton
asked the Minister of Food what is the total cost involved in the drafting and presentation of a new Order relating to the cheese ration, resulting from the annulment of a similar Order on 9th April.
§ 67. Mr. Pickthorn
asked the Minister of Food on what statutory or other authority he has given guidance to the responsible trade organisations that they are not entitled to sell a three-ounce ration of cheese.
§ Mr. Webb
The hon. Member has perhaps misunderstood my reply to a supplementary question by the hon. Member for Streatham (Mr. Sandys), on Wednesday. The guidance I gave the trade and the public the previous day was on the constitutional position with regard to the annulment of the Order; no trader was informed that he was not entitled to sell a three ounce ration. I am sending the hon. Member a copy of the notice issued to this effect.
