Abstract

The King asked the Queen, and the Queen asked the Dairymaid, 'Could we have some butter for the Royal slice of bread?'" A. A. Milne's lines have been somewhat plaintively paraphrased in many Australian households during recent months—for as a nation we are very partial to butter and the enforced reduction of consumption has not been kindly received.
