HC Deb 22 November 1948 vol 458 c88W
37. Mr. Teeling

asked the Minister of Food why goods porters who do night duty, some for a fortnight at a time and others for a week at a time, at the Brighton railway goods depot, having been granted an extra cheese ration for one month, as is given to shunters and other railway employees, have now had this extra ration withdrawn.

Dr. Summerskill

The special cheese ration was withdrawn from porters at Brighton railway goods depot in April last because it was not known that they were wholly employed out of reach of canteen facilities. I find that they are so employed and the extra cheese ration is being restored.
