HC Deb 07 June 1951 vol 488 c146W
89. Mr. Wood

asked the Minister of Health to what extent his medical advisers consider it necessary for a diabetic to supplement his ration with unrationed foods in order to sustain his special diet.

Mr. Marquand

A diabetic is allowed the extra quantities of rationed food generally considered necessary for this condition. He needs to supplement these with foods which are not rationed to the extent advised, in each individual case, by the physician.
