HC Deb 02 February 1948 vol 446 c239W
115. Mr. Messer

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware that Service patients at the Harefield County Hospital receive a meat ration valued at 2s. 9d. per week, but civilian patients are restricted to a meat ration of 1s.; and in view of the need for building up resistance to tuberculosis, will he arrange for civilian hospital patients to be granted a meat ration more in accordance with that provided for Service patients.

Mr. Strachey

I am grateful to my hon. Friend for raising this matter and I am looking into the whole question of the ration scale allowances for Service and civilian patients in hospitals.
