HC Deb 08 December 1927 vol 211 cc1584-5W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he will consider the desirability of arranging, in the case of a single rating or a small number of ratings travelling by rail on long journeys, that naval meal orders shall be accepted on restaurant trains?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

The existing arrangements respecting meal orders for naval ratings do not contemplate the supply of meals except at refreshment rooms, and I am doubtful of the practicability of extending these arrangements in the direction suggested, but the matter will be considered.
