HC Deb 05 March 1919 vol 113 c411W

asked the Food Controller whether he intends to recommend legislation to make permanent the provisions of the Bread Order, 1918, with regard to the sale of bread by weight only, the imposition of heavier penalties for offences than the penalties specified in the Bread Acts, and empowering inspectors of weights and measures to require bread to be weighed and to prosecute in respect of offences?


The question of introducing legislation in order to make permanent certain of the provisions of the Bread Order, 1918, and in particular the provision that bread must be sold by net weight only, is now under attention.
