§ 116. Mr. Thornton-Kemsley
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how soon he anticipates a decision will be reached regarding the request received from the Association of Sheriffs-Substitute for an increase in their salaries, as it is now six months since he received a memorial on this subject from the association.
§ Mr. Westwood
After consultation with my right hon. Friends the Lord Advocate and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, I have informed the Association of Sheriffs58W the war and during its earlier years the dinners were largely of the semi-liquid type (soup, mince or milk pudding) and they lacked several important protective foods. Since then improvements have been made by the addition of more meat, cheese, dried fruits, dried milk and vegetables, and the dinners now approximate closely in character and nutritional value to the standards recommended by the Government's advisers.
