§ 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?
§ Mr. MACPHERSON
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.
