HC Deb 22 March 1948 vol 448 c287W
Mr. Teeling

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that the present ration period ends on Easter Saturday, 27th March, which leaves Easter Sunday and the Bank Holiday without rations; and whether he will authorise certain rations to be sold in advance on Saturday, 27th March.

Dr. Summerskill

Yes. All coupons for ration period No. 10, beginning on 28th March, except those for meat, bacon, points and personal points foods, will be made valid for use in advance.
