§ 75. Mr. HAILWOOD
asked the Minister of Food when the restriction of hours for the sale of ice cream will be removed?
§ Mr. SHORTT
Pending the discussion of the whole question which will take place on the Shops (Early Closing) Bill, I do not propose to make any alteration in the existing restrictions imposed by the general Early Closing Order.
§ Mr. HAILWOOD
Why is it part and parcel of the policy of the Government to allow ice to be consumed in a first-class hotel after dinner while ice is prohibited in a working-class district?
§ Mr. BILLING
Has the Minister of Food decided, now that the War is over, that we should be allowed to buy chocolates, and if that is the case when shall we be allowed to buy ice cream?
