HC Deb 08 May 1940 vol 360 cc1232-3
62. Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food what arrangements he proposes to make regarding the rationing of visitors to summer resorts?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

The needs of such visitors can be adequately provided for under the rationing scheme. Special arrangements to facilitate smooth working have already been made and I am sending the hon. and learned Member a copy of our notice giving details.

Mr. Thorne

Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that a number of Members in this House will be away at the week-end, and what are we to do about our ration books?

Mr. Lennox-Boyd

I rather imagine that every Member of this House who requires it, already has a traveller's ration book.
