§ 52. Mr. C. S. Taylor
asked the Minister of Food whether he will now permit fish friers to serve hot drinks with fried fish.
§ Mr. Strachey
Fish friers may serve hot drinks made from unrationed or uncontrolled foods such as coffee or meat essences; but for allocations of rationed foods they have to apply, like anyone else.
§ Mr. Taylor
Is this a new regulation or the relaxation of a regulation by the Minister, or have fish friers always been allowed to serve hot drinks?
§ Mr. Driberg
If coffee is served, must it be served without milk and sugar, or are allocations of them granted on application.
§ Mr. S. Silverman
Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that the true tradition in Lancashire in this matter is not to have hot drinks with fried fish but lemonade.
