asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether he has considered the requests from the Miners' Federation for additional food rations for people engaged in heavy industries; and does he propose to accede to the request?
§ Mr. W. S. Morrison
A letter was addressed to my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister by the South Wales Miners' Federation, urging that some extra allowance should be given to men engaged in heavy industries such as mining. I am, however, advised that on the basis of the present rations and the large range of unrationed foods available, no supplementary rations for heavy workers are necessary.
