§ 55. Sir Francis Fremantle
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he will instruct food control committees to regard as eligible for travellers' ration books persons who, owing to the evacuation of firms by which they are employed, work five days a week away from home and spend the week-end at their home address?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
No, Sir, the general ration book and the traveller's ration book are alike in that the holder can only make one purchase in the week of any of the foods which are at present rationed. There would, therefore, be no 583 advantage in issuing a traveller's book to the persons to whom by hon. Friend refers.
§ Sir F. Fremantle
How is the gentleman concerned to get his ration when he goes to a distant town, perhaps 100 miles away?
§ Mr. Morrison
That is a different set of circumstances but I think most cases could be met if people would bring the unexpired portion of the ration with them.
