§ Wing-Commander Errington
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that a soldier coming back from France on a leave train was charged 2s. 82d. for a mug of tea, four sandwiches and two cakes, in the N.A.A.F.I. tea car; and whether he wall take steps to reduce these prices for serving personnel coming on leave.
§ Sir J. Grigg
In N.A.A.F.I. restaurants, including buffet cars on leave trains, tea costs 1d. a cup, salad 1d., cakes, 1d. 1½d. or 2d. and sandwiches between 3d. and 6d. a round. These prices compare favouably with prices charged in cafes and tea shops elsewhere. It is, of course, just possible that a mistake was made in the case mentioned by my hon. and gallant Friend.
