HC Deb 29 July 1946 vol 426 c113W
Mr. Garry Allighan

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that in many cases canteens are not provided for building workers where groups of contractors are working on a housing estate, as only one contractor may accept the responsibility; and whether he will offset this omission by allowing every building operative, working in such conditions, an extra individual ration of tea, sugar and cheese.

Mr. Strachey

All or any of the contractors on a housing estate may set up a canteen, and I regret that I cannot allow any extra rations for individual workers. If my hon. Friend can provide me with specific instances, I will make further inquiries.
