HC Deb 28 November 1944 vol 404 c2426W
Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that tooth paste can only be obtained by troops in Burma at the price of 7s. 6d. a tube; and whether he will take steps to provide it at more reasonable prices.

Mr. Amery

No, Sir. The needs of the troops serving in the operational area on the Indo-Burma frontier are looked after by Canteen Services (India) whose fixed prices for tooth paste range from 7d. to 2s. 3½d. according to size and brand.
