§ 70. Mr. T. Williams
asked the Minister of Food whether he is satisfied that the sugar allowance for school meals is adequate, seeing that milk puddings and fruit dishes form such an important part of the menus?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
I have no reason to think that the sugar allowance for school meals is inadequate. The allowance is, in any case, additional to the domestic ration.
§ Mr. Williams
If there is a special case for the community having a little more sugar than the normal allowance should not an extra allowance be given to these children who have their meals at elementary schools?
§ Mr. R. Morgan
Is there any possibility of an increase of this absurdly low sugar ration in the near future, especially in view of medical evidence of its insufficiency for these young children?
