HC Deb 14 May 1948 vol 450 cc252-3W
Mr. E. P. Smith

asked the Minister of Food the specific authority and the precise conditions under which a rural builder may become entitled to an extra cheese ration.

Mr. Strachey

In accordance with administrative arrangements which I have authorised, building trades workers regularly employed in rural areas may be granted the special cheese ration if the conditions of their employment are such that they cannot be provided by their employers with a canteen or packed meals service, and the work on which they are engaged is more than two miles from the nearest catering establishment of a suitable type.
