§ Mr. Kendall
asked the Minister of Food if he will consider making a concession whereby civilians who were interned in concentration camps and have returned to this country in a destitute condition may purchase milk at a reduced price in cases where they are suffering from malnutrition.
§ Dr. Edith Summerskill
My right hon. Friend has made arrangements for repatriated civilian prisoners of war who are suffering from malnutrition to be allowed extra milk but I am sorry we cannot undertake to make milk available at a reduced price for those who are in a destitute condition. There are sources from which people in this plight can obtain financial and other assistance to enable them to get the nourishment that they need.
