HC Deb 18 March 1919 vol 113 cc1939-40W

asked the Food Controller if he will endeavour to grant a greater supply of cheese to mining districts; is he aware that bread and cheese is the staple diet of miners; and that there is a shortage in South Wales?


Special provision for the needs of miners has been made from the limited supplies of cheese now available, and, in addition, monthly allot- ments of cheese are placed at the disposal of the Divisional Food Commissioners, in order to meet special demands in mining-and other industrial areas. Arrangements for some additional supplies to the South Wales area will, it is expected, be made very shortly.
