HC Deb 09 October 1946 vol 427 cc64-5W
Major Beamish

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that men employed as coal millers, cement millers and in lime plants feel that the soap ration provided is inadequate for their dirty clothes which need frequent washing; and if he will allow an increased ration of soap to such persons over and above the small extra ration which is sufficient only to allow the men to wash themselves.

Mr. Strachey

I regret that owing to the continued shortage of fats I am unable to increase the supply of soap to these workers.
