HC Deb 16 February 1943 vol 386 c1607W
Squadron-Leader Errington

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that there is still a lack of variety in the supply of rationed sweets for the Army in this country; and will be take steps to ensure that a regular and varied, supply is forthcoming?

Sir J. Grigg

N.A.A.F.I. are doing their' best in the increasing difficulties of the present time. Retail shops, however, started rationing with the advantage of a reserve stock which has so far enabled them to supply a greater variety of sweets. N.A.A.F.I. were only allotted enough sweets for their needs and were unable to build up a reserve.
