HC Deb 25 February 1918 vol 103 c1096
67. Captain SHEEHAN

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that officers and men who are not rationed by their units, and who are compelled to ration themselves on a special dietary medically prescribed, receive only the usual ration allowance of Is. 9d. per day; that they cannot draw these special prescribed rations from Army stores, as they are not obtainable there; that the cost is greatly in excess of the Is. 9d. daily ration allowance: and, seeing that these officers and men continue to serve their country, although suffering from complaints which require special dieting and treatment, will some thing be done to meet the extra cost to which they are put because of certain disabilities or ill-health contracted on service?


I do not know to what class of officer the hon. and gallant-Member refers, but if he will give me particulars of any case which he has specially in mind, I will look into it,
