HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 c195W
Sir E. Graham-Little

asked the Minister of Food if he will inquire into the case of Mr. Gray Jones, Heath Mill, Worplesdon, Surrey, who has for many years provided flour containing the whole wheat grain acceptable to a wide public and who, on transferring his business from Maidenhead to the Guildford rural district, has experienced difficulties at the Guildford food office in getting his bakery licence transferred from Maidenhead to Guildford; and if he will authorise this transfer.

Mr. Strachey

Mr. Jones has been invited to make his formal application for a licence to operate a bakery at Worplesdon, and I shall be pleased to consider the matter if he will complete the forms and forward them to the Ministry. I cannot authorise the transfer of the bakery licence from Maidenhead to Guildford because it appears that Mr. Jones ceased baking at Maidenhead before bread producers were licensed by the Ministry of Food, and consequently there is no licence to transfer.
