§ Mr. Price
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that no application for bread was made this year by the local committee at St. Briavells, Gloucestershire, for an ancient Whitsun ceremony; and whether he will give an assurance that this will not be taken as a precedent if application should be made in more favourable times.28W
§ Mr. Strachey
I am grateful to the organisers of this ancient ceremony for not applying for permission to use bread at this year's event. Of course, when supplies are easier their applications will be readily accepted.
