HC Deb 23 November 1917 vol 99 cc1536-7
24. Mr. T. WILSON

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that complaints are being made regarding the quantity and quality of the food supplied to the soldiers engaged on works at Richborough, Sandwich; that the men are having to buy additional food to maintain themselves; and whether he will have careful inquiry made into the matter?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Macpherson)

So far as can be ascertained, no such complaints have been made to the proper authorities. At recent inspections of the feeding arrangements both the quantity and quality of the food supplied were found to be satisfactory, and men questioned by the inspecting officers expressed satisfaction regarding the rationing arrangements.


Has there been any reduction in the quantity supplied to the men at these places?


So far as I am aware, there has been no such reduction.
