asked the Minister of Food why the priority ration of an extra ounce of cooking fat and bacon is no longer included in priority food rations granted to people suffering from tuberculosis.

The extra ounce of cooking fat a week was granted in March, 1946, after the ordinary weekly ration had been reduced from two ounces to one, and the extra ounce of bacon in March, 1947, after the ration had been reduced from three ounces to two. In view of the present levels of the bacon and cooking fat rations my medical advisers are satisfied that there is no need to continue these extra rations.
