11. Mr. Amory
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware of the unfairness caused by the present regulation that a building worker who has to take a packed midday meal, if he is engaged on work in an urban district area, is ineligible for the extra cheese ration; and whether he will now take steps to correct this anomaly.
§ Mr. Strachey
Workers in urban areas do not get extra cheese because they can normally use catering establishments, whereas workers in rural areas cannot.
