HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 cc1161-2
66. Mr. Baldwin

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that farmworkers nave no opportunity of making use of British Restaurants; and whether, in view of the fact that these restaurants provide additional rations to many people, he will now reconsider his decision not to allow additional rations to farmworkers, especially stockmen, who work seven days a week.

Mr. Strachey

Farm workers and stockmen get six times the normal cheese ration and 6 oz. of extra bread a day: this is in order to compensate for the absence of British Restaurants. I do not think we could add to it.
