§ 53. Mr. Wakefield
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he will consider allocating the same ration of cheese to railway shunters as that given to engine drivers, firemen, signalmen and other heavy workers, in view of the long hours of work which railway shunters undertake without canteen facilities?
The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Major Lloyd George)
The case of the shunters is not considered to justify the grant of the special ration of cheese as it is felt that the provision of other feeding facilities should not be impracticable.
