HC Deb 17 April 1946 vol 421 c451W
60. Mr. Proctor

asked the Minister of Food if he will issue instructions that establishments operating under a catering licence in holiday resorts are not to discriminate against children by catering for adults only.

Sir B. Smith

No, Sir. While I deprecate any such practice, I am advised that if the instructions mentioned in my hon. Friend's Question were issued I am without power to enforce them. I must therefore rely upon the good sense of persons who hold catering licences to refrain from the sort of discrimination mentioned by my hon. Friend.
