HC Deb 04 August 1947 vol 441 c114W
80. Colonel Crosthwaite-Eyre

asked the Minister of Food why the extra cheese ration is not granted to building workers in the New Milton district of Hampshire.

Dr. Summerskill

The extra cheese ration is allowed to building workers who are regularly and solely engaged on building work in rural areas situated more than two miles from the nearest town. A number of claims from the New Milton area have been disallowed because these conditions were not fulfilled.
