COLONEL LONG (Worcestershire, Evesham)
To ask the Secretary to the Admiralty whether he can state what weights of the various descriptions of jam were bought for the Navy in the years 1900 and 1901 respectively.
(Answered by Mr. Arnold-Forster.) No jam was bought for the Navy during the years mentioned, as jam is not at present included in the scale of rations for the Navy. It is, however, to be included in the revised scale which is to come into force in the course of next year.
