HC Deb 24 July 1946 vol 426 c29
50. Major Legge-Bourke

asked the Minister of Food whether he will now cause the size of the loaf to be restored to two pounds, as the smaller loaves require 10 per cent. more labour and time to produce and the proportion of crusts and ends, being greater than in larger loaves, results in more wastage of bread.

Dr. Summerskill

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply given on 8th July to the hon. Member for Evesham (Mr. De la Bère).
