asked the Minister of Food if he will make seasonal rations for farm workers available for the period of ploughing and sowing.

As an exceptional measure this year, in view of the arrears to be made good on ploughing and sowing, my right hon. Friend has authorised seasonal allowances of food until the middle of May for all farm activities demanding intensive work.


asked the Minister of Food if he will allow farmworkers a weekly ration of corned beef equivalent to the extra meat ration provided in canteens for other heavy workers.

No. Agricultural workers receive the special cheese ration of 12 oz. per week to compensate them for lack of canteen facilities.
