HC Deb 17 December 1947 vol 445 c344W
69. Mr. Walker-Smith

asked the Minister of Food what regulations are now in force governing the offering of foodstuffs as prizes for whist drives and similar functions; and what is their general effect.

Dr. Summerskill

The general effect of the rationing regulations is that rationed foods may not be offered as prizes where an entrance fee is charged, or where the food passes through the hands of a third party. But there would be no objection to direct gifts from one individual to another of home produce or food obtained in accordance with the Ministry's rationing orders. Unrationed and non-controlled foods may be offered as prizes.
