HC Deb 16 October 1945 vol 414 cc959-60W
Mr. Martin

asked the Secretary of State for War what is the retail price of beer for troops in the India Command; and how it compares with that charged in other commands.

Mr. Lawson

The retail price of imported beer for troops in India is 1 rupee 2 annas (1s. 9d.) per reputed quart. This compares with 1s. 6d. (sterling) per reputed quart in Ceylon and S.E.A.C.
