HC Deb 05 February 1947 vol 432 cc351-2W
72. Mr. Carson

asked the Minister of Food, in view of the shortage of rationed, pointed and unrationed foodstuffs in coastal holiday resorts last summer, whether he has any plans for an increased allocation during the coming season, in order to improve matters.

Dr. Summerskill

I am satisfied that the existing machinery is sufficiently elastic to ensure equitable supplies of foods in holiday resorts and that it did so last year. I am happy to say that arrangements for points rationed foods for the coming season have already been settled with traders' representatives.
