HC Deb 23 November 1939 vol 353 c1412W
Mr. Jenkins

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what persons and organisations were consulted before he decided not to make available supplementary supplies of rationed foods to workpeople engaged in the heavy industries and adolescents?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Consultations of an informal and confidential character were held in connection with the formulation of proposals for general rationing. No supplementary allowances have been considered necessary in connection with the present rationing scheme, which is limited to bacon and butter, having regard especially to the range of un-rationed foods available.
