§ Mr. Rhys Davies
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he is aware that some retailers object to request 19 in Circular R.G.M.6, demanding that they must place in alphabetical order all the counterfoils of ration books before they are handed in to the local food office; and will he consider relieving them of this task?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
The sentence in the circular to which the hon. Member refers contains a request. Compliance with it will, I hope, make for the convenience both of the retailer and the Local Food Office. I have no evidence that the request has been considered unreasonable.
