HC Deb 04 March 1947 vol 434 c48W
Mr. Baker White

asked the Secretary of State for War the composition of the jam-like substance given to prisoners of war engaged upon agricultural work for their mid-day meal; and details of the breakfast given to these men before going out to work.

Mr. Bellenger

The jam issued to prisoner of war camps is of the same quality as that supplied to the Army generally and in this country is manufactured in accordance with the Food Standards (Preserves) Order. The most usual breakfast for prisoners of war consists of:

  • Porridge (with salt or sugar or milk or dried fruit).
  • Bread.
  • Margarine.
  • Jam or marmalade.
  • Tea or coffee.
