HC Deb 14 November 1916 vol 87 cc565-6
29. Commander WEDGWOOD

asked whether the rations for the troops at the front have been reduced as follows: Tea, five-eighths of an ounce to four-eighths of an ounce per day; bacon, three ounces to two ounces per day; and cheese also; if so, why is the reduction made; and does it apply also to troops in this country?


As far as I know, the scale of rations has not been reduced; the second and third parts of the question, therefore, do not arise.

Commander WEDGWOOD

Will the hon. Gentleman make inquiries about this, because I have the facts?


If my hon. and gallant Friend would give me something to go upon. I have made inquiries, and, so far as I know, the scale has not been reduced.
