HC Deb 27 March 1946 vol 421 c24W
14. Major Digby

asked the Secretary of State for War why British troops in Java are not receiving their N.A.A.F.I. rations regularly; and why the cost of other items supplied by N.A.A.F.I., such as boot polish and fruit cordial, is so high.

Mr. Lawson:

There has been a shortage of N.A.A.F.I. supplies in certain parts of Java owing to irregularity of shipping, but the position has been improved. The prices of such items as boot polish and fruit cordials are approximately the same as in the United Kingdom.
