§ 68. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
asked the Minister of Food what extra rations, and subject to what conditions, he intends to issue to persons entertaining in their homes visitors to the Festival of Britain.
§ Mr. Webb
Householders in London who provide accommodation, approved by the British Travel and Holidays Association, during the Festival of Britain will be enabled to provide meals, in the same way as hotels for guests who stay for short periods. Guests who stay five nights or more will have to bring their own ration cards in the usual way. For those staying for shorter periods, householders will get ration cards in proportion to the number of meals served.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
Can the right hon. Gentleman say how this concession will be restricted to visitors to this particular festival?
§ Mr. Turton
Why should not this scheme be extended over the rest of the country where the Festival of Britain is taking place?
§ Lieut.-Commander Gurney Braithwaite
What happens if the visitors give the Festival a miss after their arrival and go to cricket matches?
