§ CAPTAIN DONELAN (Cork, E.)
I beg to ask the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether he is aware that the pensioners of Chelsea Hospital are largely rationed upon foreign refrigerated meat; and, whether this regulation will be reconsidered and rescinded with a view to provide these worn-out 1299 veterans with nutritious home-grown beef and mutton?
THE FINANCIAL SECRETARY TO THE WAR OFFICE (Mr. POWELL-WILLIAMS,) Birmingham S.
No, Sir. The meat supplied to the in-pensioners is required, under the contract, to be English beef and mutton.
