HC Deb 07 August 1940 vol 364 cc214-5
68. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he will arrange with the competent authorities that Home Guard posts, permanently manned, can be provided with extra tea and sugar rations, in view of the extra hours worked by the occupants and the fact that they are only entitled to ordinary civilian rations?

Mr. Boothby

The requirements of Home Guard posts will be sympathetically considered if application for special permits for tea and sugar is made by the officer or other responsible person in charge of individual posts to the appropriate Food Control Committee.
