HC Deb 16 April 1947 vol 436 c184
49. Mr. Janner

asked the Minister of Food what is the policy of his Department in regard to the continuance of British Restaurants, in view of the fact that no further financial help is available to them.

Mr. Strachey

As my hon. Friend may recollect, the Civic Restaurants Act lays the financial responsibility for these restaurants upon local authorities. I hope and believe that local authorities will make the fullest possible use of their new powers to run restaurants.
