HC Deb 05 March 1940 vol 358 c231W
Mr. Daggar

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is now in a position to state what arrangements he proposes to make in order to provide members of His Majesty's Forces with food within the period of 4.30 p.m. to 8.30 a.m.?

Mr. Stanley

There is provision for a supper meal, the normal hours for which are from 6.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. Where the men's messing committee prefer it, tea and supper are combined in a high tea served usually at about 6 p.m., and in some units soup or cocoa is available at a later hour. Normal breakfast hours are from 7.30 a.m. to 8 a.m.
