HC Deb 18 December 1916 vol 88 c1121
20. Mr. E. HARVEY

asked the Comptroller of the Household, as representing the National Health Insurance Commissioners, whether the new arrangements now in force with regard to the sending of parcels of food to British civilian prisoners of war in Germany prevent relatives from sending food which they themselves purchase, even when sent through the recognised central committee; and whether this arrangement can be modified so as to allow invalids and others requiring special diet to receive parcels of food chosen for them by their families who know their individual needs?


I am sorry to have to ask my hon. Friend to postpone this question until to-morrow, when I hope to give a fuller and more satisfactory answer than I could to-day.
