HC Deb 27 June 1918 vol 107 c1235
95. Major CHAPPLE

asked the Undersecretary of State for War whether any advance in the mess allowance to nurses has recently been made to meet the increased cost of food; and whether he has satisfied himself that the increased and increasing strain being put upon nurses in the execution of their duties is being fully met by an adequate supply of nourishing food?


An advance of 4s. 2d. was authorised in February, 1917. I have no information to suggest that the nurses are suffering in consequence of an inadequate supply of nourishing food.
