§ 62. Colonel Erroll
asked the Minister of Food whether he contemplates providing special communal feeding facilities for old age pensioners who cannot afford to buy meals at restaurants.
§ Dr. Summerskill
Local authorities operating British Restaurants may allow old age pensioners price concessions so long as the restaurant undertaking is fully self-supporting, and the prices charged are not less than the approximate cost of the raw food provided in the meal. Many local authorities provide British Restaurant meals at special prices for old age pensioners. My right hon. Friend does not contemplate providing further special facilities
§ Mr. S. Marshall
Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that there are no British Restaurants in the country which work on a profit basis?
