§ 56. Mr. Gammans
asked the Minister of Food what is the estimated cost of the "Wash Now" campaign; and if it is proposed to increase the ration of soap to enable the advice given to be put into effect.
§ Dr. Summerskill
I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the British Tourists and Holidays Board's campaign to improve hygiene in catering establishments. The first part of the Question is therefore, a matter for my right hon. Friend, the President of the Board of Trade. I regret that it is not possible to increase the soap ration, but I hope that catering establishments will take up their full ration and will make every effort to maintain a high standard of cleanliness in their businesses.
§ Mr. Gammans
Can the Minister say whether the advice to wash more often has been sent to Government Departments, including the Ministry of Fuel and Power?
§ Mr. Keeling
Can the Minister say how much of the revenue of the Tourist Board comes from the pockets of the taxpayer and ratepayer?
