HC Deb 11 June 1947 vol 438 c114W
83. Commander Noble

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether he will give an assurance that it is not proposed to withdraw or curtail the traditional daily issue of rum to men of the Royal Navy.

Mr. Dugdale

I am glad to assure the hon. and gallant Member that it is not the Admiralty's intention either to withdraw or curtail the rum ration.
