HC Deb 05 June 1940 vol 361 cc857-8W
Commander Locker-Lampson

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether, in order to avoid some measure of rationing, he will introduce one or more days when meat and spirits are not consumed, as is the practice in France to-day?

Mr. Boothby

No, Sir. My Noble Friend is not satisfied that such a step would enable him to avoid any measure of rationing at the present time.
