§ 85. Mr. BUTCHER
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Local Government Board what steps have been taken to make the food allowances to the inmates of the workhouses and lunatic asylums conform to the rationing allowances recently laid down by the Food Controller?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the LOCAL GOVERNMENT BOARD (Mr. Hayes Fisher)
Instructions have been issued which will bring the dietaries for inmates of workhouses into conformity with the allowances laid down by the Food Controller. Questions relating to the food allowances for inmates of lunatic asylums should be addressed to the Home Office.
Mr. MacCALLUM SCOTT
Does that mean that the Government have adopted a system of rations for these institutions which are under their control, whilst they refuse to adopt it for the country as a whole?
§ Mr. HAYES FISHER
The Government have issued instructions so that the dietaries for inmates in workhouses may have complete relation to the regulations laid down by the Food Controller.
