HC Deb 25 January 1940 vol 356 cc812-3W
Mr. Gledhill

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether the clerical staffs of Government Departments are still provided with tea, sugar, and butter without ration cards; and whether this concession may now be extended to other clerical staffs?

Mr. W. S. Morrison

Clerical staffs of Government Departments are in the same position as clerical staffs in other offices and receive no special privileges in regard to the supply of rationed foods. Staff canteens, whether Government or other, which were in existence when rationing was introduced have been registered by Food Control Committees as catering establishments. Such canteens are entiled to the limited allowances of rationed foodstuffs available for such establishments.
