WARTIME FOOD RESTRICTIONS
DISAPPEARING IN ENGLAND
London, Jan. 16 (Correspondence of
the Associated Press). - England's
wartime food restrictions are slowly
but gradually disappearing. Lard is
now obtainable without coupon, all
restrictions are removed from the
making and selling of sweet pastries
and cakes, as well as the restriction
on afternoon teas in restaurants and
teashops. Fancy bread is till forbid-
den but white bread is now supplied
to hotels and private houses, while
white flour is obtainable almost any-
where.
Stocks of food in London are in-
creasing daily. More than 40,000 tons
of wheat are under discharge at the
docks meat is arriving by the ship-
load, thousands of boxes of oranges,
nuts and apples are arriving and more
are afloat.
Tea appears to be in greater sup-
ply than demand and people are be-
ing urged to buy. Sugar stocks in
London alone total 20,000 tons in pub-
lic, and 20,000 tons in private ware-
houses.
