HC Deb 22 February 1917 vol 90 cc1477-8W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been called to the recent report alleging that there is still continued waste of food in military camps; and what steps are being taken to prevent it?


I do not know to what my hon. Friend refers, but I can assure him that every possible effort has been, and is being, made to prevent waste of foodstuffs throughout the Army. The importance of so doing has been impressed on all ranks by every available means. If my hon. Friend wishes to have detailed information as to the steps taken, and the results achieved, I shall be glad to give it to him.
