HC Deb 23 June 1927 vol 207 c2067W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether naval ratings travelling by railway are able to obtain proper food under the present system of meal orders; whether he is aware that in some instances meal orders are authorised for stations where, at the time of arrival, facilities do not exist; and whether any improvement can be effected in the meal order system?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. Complaints are comparatively few, and they are promptly investigated with a view to maintaining and improving, the smooth working of the arrangements. It is not considered that any alteration in the system is required.
