HC Deb 20 March 1941 vol 370 c281
39. Mr. David Adams

asked the President of the Board of Education whether, in conjunction with his experiments in the physical training of apprentices during their working hours, and the effects of this upon their output, he will, in co-operation with the Ministry of Food, experiment also with diets in order to ascertain effects upon output and health?

Mr. Ramsbotham
