HC Deb 28 November 1945 vol 416 c1496W
Sir R. Glyn

asked the Minister of Food by how much and in what essentials does the standard civilian ration in this country today fall below that laid down in 1933 by the Government of that day as being the minimum necessary to support those who were unemployed and receiving relief in a distressed area.

Sir B. Smith

As it is impossible to answer this Question adequately without including several statistical tables and a detailed commentary on them, I have had a special report prepared on this matter which I am sending to the hon. Member.
