HC Deb 05 March 1940 vol 358 c235W
Mr. Glenvil Hall

asked the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been drawn to complaints from the British Expeditionary Force that too much beef is being issued; and whether he will arrange for home-grown or New Zealand lamb and mutton to be issued more often?

Mr. Stanley

No complaints have been received that too much beef is being issued, but, at the request of my right hon. Friend the Minister of Food, additional supplies of mutton are being provided for the troops.
