HC Deb 30 June 1952 vol 503 c4W
54. Mr. F. Willey

asked the Minister of Food why he has issued to food offices new advice and instructions regarding the issue of ration books; and what arrangements are being made to replace the safeguards provided by the use of national identity cards.

Dr. Hill

Apart from arrangements for the annual issue of new ration books, the only recent instructions have related to the evidence required instead of identity cards or of travel documents from the Republic of Ireland. It would not be in the public interest to disclose the safeguards employed.
