HC Deb 28 March 1945 vol 409 c1362
53. Mr. Viant

asked the Minister of Food whether he will give sympathetic consideration to the position of persons living alone when re-fixing the cheese ration and allow them to continue to have the present ration of three ounces.

The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Mr. Mabane)

My right hon. and gallant Friend sympathises with the difficulties of those who live alone, but he does not consider he would be justified in varying in their favour the general policy of fixing rations at the highest possible level for all to enjoy.
