HC Deb 03 March 1948 vol 448 c390
57. Mr. Piratin

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that his Order limiting the number of people who may attend a function where a full meal is provided does not cover the provision of buffet suppers for unlimited numbers, at which lavish meals are provided; and whether he will take steps to prevent this practice.

Dr. Summerskill

The Order prohibits the service of luncheons, dinners and suppers to parties of more than 100 people. If the hon. Member has in mind any case of evasion I shall be glad to look into it.
