36. Mr. De la Bère
asked the Minister of Food whether in view of the improved food position and having regard to the favourable reports on the wheat crops 1726 for the coming season, he will now consider discontinuing bread rationing.
Mr. De la Bère
Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that the practice of having to go without bread with courses at restaurants could easily be brought to an end now, as the position of wheat supplies throughout the world is, for once, satisfactory?
§ Mr. Strachey
I am grateful for the hon. Member's optimism, but I will wait until a little nearer to the harvest before coming to a decision.
