36. Mr. DAVISON
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the probable revocation of the food orders made under the Defence of the Realm Act, it is the intention of the Government to give full effect to the recommendations of the Select Committee of the House of Commons appointed to inquire whether any and, if so, what steps should be taken to protect purchasers of goods sold in packages and of bread, from short weight or measure, which reported on the 15th July, 1914; and whether it is proposed to re-enact in permanent form the provisions regarding sales by weight and measure in the various food orders.
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY OF FOOD (Mr. McCurdy)
I have been asked to reply. It is the intention of the Government to introduce legislation for the purpose of 1899 giving effect to the recommendations of the Select Committee, together with the provisions regarding sales by weight and measure in the various food orders?
