HC Deb 22 March 1917 vol 91 c2036
74. Mr. BOLAND

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, in view of the fact that white flour, in accordance with the rubrics of the Catholic Church, is required for the making of altar breads, and that these have to be supplied to the Catholic chaplains in the Army and Navy as well as to the Catholic clergy in Great Britain and Ireland, he can state whether arrangements can be made for the necessary supply?


Licences are being issued for the manufacture for religious purposes of pure bread—that is to say, bread made of wheaten flour only.
