HC Deb 25 March 1952 vol 498 c35W
88. Mr. G. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for War what increase he estimates will be necessary in the cost of food for the Army, due to the food subsidy reductions.

Mr. Head

It is not yet possible to estimate the extra costs, except for flour and bread, of which the additional cost in the coming financial year will be some £250,000.
