§ 48. Sir H. Williams
asked the Prime Minister to what Departments it is intended to allot the remaining functions of the Ministry of Food after the forthcoming abolition of rationing.
§ The Prime Minister (Sir Winston Churchill)
The end of rationing this summer will make possible further large staff reductions but will still leave important duties of Government to be performed. It is not yet possible to forecast the arrangements for carrying out these long term functions.
§ The Prime Minister
Yes, Sir. I think that general statements of that character have been made for some time past, but the actual details must be precisely stated when they are all settled.
