HC Deb 18 November 1946 vol 430 c27W
84. Mr. Medland

asked the Minister of Food whether he will consent to the granting of priority milk to all persons over 75 years of age.

Mr. Strachey

I very much regret that I cannot grant extra milk for elderly people at the present time. It could only be done at the expense of other sections of the community, and I would not be justified in reducing their allowances.
