§ 76. Colonel YATE
asked the hon. Member for Wilton, as representing the Food Controller, whether he has received a petition from the Allied Union of Operative Bakers, Confectioners, and Allied Workers, at Leicester, begging in the national interests for the prohibition of the sale of new bread, and the consequent abolition of night work for bakers, by the issue of an Order that bread is to be baked one day and sold the next; and, if so, what steps he proposes to take in regard to the same?
The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of FOOD CONTROL (Captain Bathurst)
A copy of a Resolution passed by this Society in favour of the prohibition of the sale of new bread was sent to the President of the Board of 612 Trade, and has been forwarded by him to the Food Controller, who is, at present, conferring with representatives of the baking trade on the subject.
