HC Deb 13 November 1945 vol 415 c2060W
Mr. Kingsmill

asked the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that powdered tea has recently been issued to certain units of A.T.S. in the London district and elsewhere; and will he give an assurance that in future leaf tea only is issued to the A.T.S.

Mr. Lawson

If, as I assume, the hon. Member is referring to tea, sugar and milk powder, this is not issued to the troops, and any issues to A.T.S. must have been made in error. Steps have been taken to prevent a recurrence.
