HC Deb 04 May 1943 vol 389 c43W
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.
