§ Major Lyons
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food the reason for the issue of Statutory Rule and Order, No. 496, of 1943?
§ Mr. Mabane
This Order was made to amend the Bread (Control and Maximum Price) Order, 1943, so as, first, to enable a retailer, in the event of his registered supplier being prevented from supplying him owing to a temporary breakdown in production, to obtain supplies from another source, and secondly, to enable a roundsman who has run short of supplies to obtain these from another supplier nearer than his own firm's premises, thus avoiding unnecessary use of transport.
