HC Deb 19 December 1935 vol 307 cc1993-4W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether arrangements have been or are to be made for the Army to be supplied with tinned milk manufactured in the United Kingdom?


With the exception of two trial orders placed in a Dominion, the tinned milk purchased by the War Office since April, 1932, has been manufactured in the United Kingdom. This milk consists of a small quantity required by hospitals at home and tinned milk issued from this country to troops overseas. The troops at home purchase their milk, whether fresh or tinned, regimentally from the Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes out of a daily cash allowance. The Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes supply no foreign milk.
