HC Deb 03 December 1951 vol 494 cc2015-6
44. Mr. Bence

asked the Minister of Food what special Regulations he is making with regard to the allocations of food to hotels and boarding houses during the Christmas holiday.

Major Lloyd George

None, Sir.

Mr. Bence

Is the Minister aware that if no regulation is provided that supplies of poultry and food to hotels should be restricted, housewives of this country will be very disappointed, in view of the pledges given by the party opposite during the Election that there would be supplies of red meat?

Major Lloyd George

In the first place I would not describe poultry as red meat. The only thing that happened last year was an Order restricting, I think, turkeys for one day during the Christmas period, and that has not been a very satisfactory scheme to carry out.
