§ 74. Mr. N. CHAMBERLAIN
asked the Food Controller whether he is aware that under the present system of distribution of meat supplies the owners of multiple butchers' shops are given bulk permits for the whole of their shops; whether this arrangement gives a decided advantage to such owners and to their customers as compared with the owners of single shops and their customers; and whether he will take steps to remedy this differentiation?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of FOOD (Mr. McCurdy)
Owners of multiple shops are given bulk permits for the whole of their shops; but they are at the same time required to conform to certain directions as to the amount and description of meat which may be sold in such shops. There is thus no differentiation in this matter between single and multiple shops.
