§ 35. Mr. Steward
asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the fact that vouchers for seven pints of milk weekly are being given to schoolchildren, he will give this concession to old-age pensioners who are obliged to seek National Assistance.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food (Dr. Charles Hill)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff, North (Mr. Llewellyn) on Friday, 28th May, 1954
§ Mr. Steward
Would not my hon. Friend agree that the need for giving free milk to old-age pensioners is at least as great as the need for giving it to children whose parents, in many cases, could afford to pay for it themselves?
