§ 47. Mr. LANSBURY
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will circulate to Members of 1593 the House a copy of the dietary scales in use at the various grades of prisons under his control, together with the tables showing the quantities of ingredients required to be used in making tea, cocoa, soup, and other articles of food?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I am sending the hon. Member copies of the ordinary dietary scales in use in convict and local prisons, with the particulars for which he asks as to ingredients, but I hope the hon. Member will not press, save on strong grounds, for its circulation, which would involve a certain expenditure.
Can the right hon. Gentleman tell us whether the tea and cocoa come from places within the Empire or outside the Empire?
