HC Deb 12 May 1947 vol 437 c105W
62. Sir G. Fox

asked the Minister of Food how many farmers have set up canteens; and if he will make a statement on this matter, in view of the approaching long week.

Mr. Strachey

A farm canteen may be licensed and may obtain foods in the same way as any other canteen; short of asking each food office, we could not find out how many there are. But the number is no doubt small. When canteens are not provided certain allowances are available instead, for tittles of special activity. In addition agricultural workers get, of course, six times the normal cheese ration and six extra B.Us.
