Major Lloyd George:

New conditions affecting the establishment of British Restaurants have not been laid down. The policy of my Noble Friend has always been that before plans for a British Restaurant in any locality are approved full regard should be paid to the existing catering facilities and, when the latter are adequate both in capacity and price, a further restaurant should not be established. My Noble Friend has recently reaffirmed that policy and has given an undertaking that, should a local catering association make representations to him in regard to a proposal by a local authority to establish a British Restaurant on the ground that the catering trade in the area can give the required service, full inquiry will be made locally by a representative of the Ministry of Food before approval is given to the establishment of the restaurant.
