RATIONING OF TEA SHOPS
The following provision is to apply to every public eating place as defined in the Public Meals Order, 1917, which is excepted from that Order under clause 7 ( c ) thereof:- No individual customer shall be served at any meal whatsoever which begins between the hours of 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. with more than 2Oz. in the whole of bread, cake, bun, scone, and biscuit.

This clause does not come into force until April 23.
For the purpose of this Order the expression "Wheaten Flour" shall mean any flour for the time being authorized to be used in the manufacture of wheaten bread, and the expression "sugar" shall include glucose.
Any contravention of the Order is summary offence against the Defence of the Realm Regulations

...While the order is in operation cakes will largely be made of barley and maize flours, anf more fruit will be used. Dundee cakes, it is stated, will not suffer too much so long as fruit and butter can be used. The muffin man's round seems to be doomed. Mrs Piet, of Marylebone lane, who owns one of the biggest crumpet and muffin businesses in London is wondering what she can do. The order, she says, means that she must shut down.
A loophole in the Pubilc Meals Order, which made it possible for teashops to serve a meal including more than 2oz of bread stuffs, has been partially filled up by the new provision that no individual customer at such establishments shall be served at any meal which begins between the hours of 3pm and 6pm with more than 2oz in the whole of bread, cake, bun, scone or biscuit.
