HC Deb 17 December 1947 vol 445 c344W
68. Mr. Hogg

asked the Minister of Food whether he has considered the allocations of food to the University towns and the representations which have been received to the effect that these are dealt with hardly as compared with the coastal towns and other health resorts; and what action he proposes to take.

Dr. Summerskill

Allocations of food for all towns are based upon the population which in University towns includes the members of the University. Special arrangements are made wherever necessary to meet an influx of population particularly in coastal towns and health resorts during the season. It may, however, be that the hon. Member has in mind the problem of University feeding. This we are discussing tomorrow with representatives nominated by the Committee of Vice Chancellors and I will, if the hon. Member wishes, let him know the result of the meeting in due course.
