asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is aware that children who for medical reasons are unable to attend school cannot, even upon the certificate of a doctor, obtain the milk to which children attending schools are entitled; and whether speedy step will be taken to alter the regulations to meet the cases of children suffering from protracted disabilities?

As my hon. and gallant Friend will be aware, there is no restriction on the amount of milk that can be obtained by consumers at the present time. Arrangements are being made which will enable children who are unable to attend school to obtain a priority supply of milk at home during any future period of restriction.

Will that answer apply to the case about which I have written to my hon. Friend?

I am sorry, but I have no knowledge of the case to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers. Perhaps he might discuss it with me afterwards.
