§ Sir J. AGG-GARDNER
asked the President of the Board of Trade if, where a large number of soldiers is suddenly drafted into a town and no canteens are available, some concession in the Output of Beer (Restrictions) Act may be afforded to breweries supplying the public-houses in such a locality, to enable them to cope with the unexpected and unavoidable expansion of their trade?
§ Mr. PRETYMAN
The Act contains provisions for securing an adequate supply of beer to military canteens and further powers for the purpose will be asked for from Parliament in a Bill which will 997W shortly be introduced. I regret that I cannot see my way to make special provision for additional supplies, except through canteens.
