HC Deb 27 February 1918 vol 103 c1354
15. Mr. ALDEN

asked the Undersecretary of State for War the amount of the cheese ration as supplied to the soldiers in the Army; whether he has any evidence to show that it is considered a somewhat larger ration than is required by the necessities of the case; and, if so, whether he will, in view of the shortage of cheese at home, consider the advisability of slightly reducing the ration?


Cheese is not issued to troops as a normal part of the ration at home. In France it has been reduced from 3 ozs. to 2 ozs., and no further reduction is considered desirable.
