HC Deb 14 May 1948 vol 450 c253W
Mr. Prescott

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware that many persons suffering from complaints which necessitate a light diet are unable to obtain the appropriate kinds of food; and what steps he will take to remedy this position.

Mr. Strachey

My medical advisers have considered the additional rationed foods required by various types of invalids. A list of their recommendations is in the hands of every doctor who knows that individual cases also will always be considered by us on their merits. On such cases we take the advice of our medical advisers, in whom I have complete confidence.
