HC Deb 03 December 1941 vol 376 cc1152-3W
Sir L. Lyle

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider granting an allocation of eating chocolate to members of the Home Guard, particularly when their units are on night duty after a full day of civilian work?

Captain Margesson

In view of the shortage of supplies I am afraid that this proposal would not be practicable at the present time. As my hon. Friend is aware, members of the Home Guard already have certain advantages over the general public with regard to the purchase of chocolate in garrison and regimental institutes or canteens conducted by voluntary bodies.
