HC Deb 15 November 1939 vol 353 cc707-8
48. Mr. Dobbie

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will, when considering the question of rationing of food, give special consideration to workers engaged in heavy industries such as steel works, mines and railways; and will he make provision for canteens which provide for these employes at the various works in the country?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

In answer to the first part of the question so far as the present rationing scheme is concerned, I would refer to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Broxtowe (Mr. Cocks) on 9th November. In answer to the second part of the question, arrangements will be made for industrial canteens on the lines of those for catering establishments generally.

50. Mr. W. Roberts

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether, under any system of rationing, special arrangements will be made for delicate persons and invalids to obtain additional allowances?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The hon. Member's proposal is already receiving consideration.
