§ Mr. Sutcliffe
asked the Minister of Food if he will now consider the granting of permits for the provision of refreshments at social functions held by churches and Sunday schools, which provide for the welfare of young people through organisations attached to the church, in the same way that facilities are granted to youth organisations.
§ Colonel Llewellin
Arrangements have already been made to enable supplies of tea, sugar, milk, margarine and preserves to be authorised to reputable bodies organising functions for the entertainment of children and young persons under 19 years of age. It is not intended, however, that functions of this sort should as a rule take place more frequently than once a week. Applications for authorities should be made to the local Food Office.
