HC Deb 07 July 1948 vol 453 cc374-5
54. Mr. Peter Freeman

asked the Minister of Food whether he will arrange that items such as bread, soup, cheese and fresh fruits each be considered as half a course in restaurants and hotels, so as to provide a greater choice than at present.

Dr. Summerskill

No, Sir, but my right hon. Friend is arranging for fresh fruit to be served without counting as a course.

Mr. Freeman

When making any changes, will the Minister of Food consider this question of the three-course arrangements?

Dr. Summerskill

I would remind my hon. Friend that bread and cheese is already one course.
