asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air the reasons for basing in the future the value of the meat ration at Royal Air Force home stations on frozen-beef prices, and if any financial saving is expected from this procedure; and why no extra credit can be allowed to compensate for the higher cost of mutton when purchased for units?
§ Mr. MONTAGUE
There has been no change of existing practice; the hon. and gallant Member possibly has a recent order on the subject of ration issues in mind but this order merely re-stated that practice. The standard ration is frozen beef. On one day each week units may draw mutton instead of beef to the equivalent money value.
