HC Deb 20 November 1945 vol 416 c386W
Sir J. Mellor

asked the Secretary of State for War why supplies of wine and spirits have not yet been requisitioned from Germans in the British zone for consumption by British occupying Forces.

Mr. Lawson

Wines or spirits are not issued as part of the normal ration. They are requisitioned for hospital needs, when the quality is satisfactory, or to meet N.A.A.F.I. requirements, as and when necessary.
