HC Deb 09 October 1939 vol 352 c40W
Mr. Crowder

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the difficulty of the sick poor in obtaining stimulants at current prices, he will consider the possibility of permitting small supplies of this commodity at a reduced rate on the production of a doctor's certificate?

Sir J. Simon

I regret that my hon. Friend's proposal would be impracticable.
