HC Deb 13 February 1945 vol 408 c47W
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.
