HC Deb 14 October 1915 vol 74 c1499W

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether the daily ration allowance of officers has been reduced from 1s. 9d. to 1s. 5d. a day; and, if so, will he say why this reduction has been made?


No, Sir; the ration allowance remains at 1s. 9d. for those to whom the Department is not prepared to issue rations. But officers who for their own convenience do not wish to draw the ration in kind may draw the contract value of the ration in lieu, and this value is 1s. 5d.
