§ 50. Mr. HERBERT SAMUEL
asked the Prime Minister if he is aware that soldiers in the forces at home, many of whom are subjected to no great physical exertion, receive as part of their rations as much meat per day as large numbers of workers, such as miners and blast-furnacemen, engaged in the heaviest manual labour, are able, during the present shortage, to obtain per week; and what action the Government propose to take in the matter?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The meat ration of all troops at home, except those under training or otherwise in preparation for service-overseas, and mobile formation actually employed in home defence, has bees reduced by one-third.
