§ Mr. Denville
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether travelling showmen, can be permitted to have unit coupons for the corn rations for their animals, similar to petrol coupons, so that they can purchase the supplies as required instead of the present system under which they must buy in bulk and cart about, with the risk of damage and theft, the full ration for the month?270W
Major Lloyd George
Favourable consideration will be given to any application for special coupons to enable feeding-stuffs to be purchased at different places as required if the applicant can show that the present system of deposit of coupons is inappropriate to his particular case. Up to the present, no such application has been received from a travelling showman.
