HC Deb 28 February 1918 vol 103 cc1533-4
36. Mr. LYNCH

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he will advise an arrangement by which the ration tickets may hold good for two weeks so that small families may be enabled to get an occasional joint?


I am already considering this suggestion; but I propose to wait for a rather longer experience of the scheme before arriving at a decision upon it. I may take this opportunity of stating that, as a temporary measure to provide for any unexpected failure to secure complete distribution in the first week of the London and Home Counties Rationing scheme, Food Control Committees have been authorised, when they think fit, to allow cards or coupons not used in the first week to be used in the second.
