HC Deb 20 February 1941 vol 369 c311W
Mr. Muff

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food, whether he is aware that the corporation of Hull is ready to supply 100,000 emergency meals at half the estimated cost of his Department; and will he authorise the supply of meat for this purpose?

Major Lloyd George

My Noble Friend is not aware of the charges which the Corporation of Hull propose to make for their emergency meals, but he recognises that the cost of meals on the scale suggested should be much lower than in the case of normal community kitchens supplying a relatively small number of meals. The supply of meat for emergency meals is a matter that must depend upon conditions at the time of the emergency.
