HC Deb 13 March 1950 vol 472 cc20-1W
78. Major Gates

asked the Minister of Food whether in view of the expected influx of foreign visitors, he intends to relax the regulations imposing the 5s. maximum charge on meals, together with the accompanying house charges, music and dancing charges and authorised surcharges.

Mr. Webb

Last autumn my right hon. Friend and predecessor undertook to review the regulations before this year's tourist season. I intend to do this as soon as possible, but until I have had an opportunity of carefully weighing all the factors involved I would be glad not to be pressed to give any prior indication of what my decision is likely to be.
