§ 17. Mr. Steward
asked the Minister of Food by what authority civic restaurant authorities are undertaking the preparation, cooking and serving of meals otherwise than in restaurant premises open to the general public.
§ Mr. Webb
This is done through the powers of the Civic Restaurants Act, under which civic restaurant authorities mayprovide for the supply to the public of meals and refreshments and may carry on such activities as are reasonably incidental or ancillary to the services aforesaid.
§ Mr. Steward
Does the Minister consider that the Act he quoted gives the right to civil restaurant authorities to carry out catering for wedding receptions and private parties in the homes of private people?
