HC Deb 28 March 1945 vol 409 c1364
59. Mr. Keeling

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that Food Executive Officers will not authorise on their own responsibility the issue of extra milk to a woman unable to name the father of her expected child and send the application to the Regional Controller; and whether he will direct that such applications shall be granted without such delay provided there is medical evidence of pregnancy.

Mr. Mabane

Pregnant women are granted facilities to enable them to obtain extra milk as soon as medical evidence of pregnancy is produced. No further particulars are required.

Mr. Keeling

Can my right hon. Friend say how the thing happens about which I wrote to him?

Mr. Mabane

I will do my best.
