§ Sir W. Edge
asked the Minister of Food whether he is satisfied that the rations for miners are adequate to enable them to carry out heavy work; and whether supplies to the pit canteens are of sufficient variety to attract more patronage than at present.
§ Colonel Llewellin
Yes, Sir. I am advised that the rations for miners, together with the food provided for their canteens, are nutritionally sufficient for their needs. The scale of allowances of food to pithead canteens provides sufficient variety for preparing food and satisfactory meals.
