TRUTH !!
Food rationing continued after the close of the war in 1945, mainly because
of the cost of imports and the need for the U.K. government to tightly
control expenditure in foreign currencies. Key commodities such as sugar,
meat, petrol and clothing were all affected. Bread which had not been
rationed during the war, was rationed from 1946-48 following a long spell of
wet weather that reduced the wheat harvest in 1946.
