HC Deb 24 April 1941 vol 371 c270W
Sir W. Wayland

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food why farmers and their sons, working on their farms, are not receiving the eight-ounce ration of cheese per week as well as ordinary farm-workers; and is he not aware that the majority of farms in Great Britain are worked by father and sons with little or no extra help?

Major Lloyd George

The extra ration of cheese is being granted to underground miners and agricultural workers who generally take their mid-day meal with them to work. Farmers and their sons usually have their mid-day meal at home.
