HC Deb 17 July 1916 vol 84 c654
25. Mr. W. THORNE

asked the Minister of Munitions whether he is aware that no food canteen has been opened in the Albert Dock, North Woolwich; if he is aware of the demand for the same by the working classes employed in the docks; and if he intends taking any action in the matter?


The Central Control Board have been in touch with representatives of the various classes of labour employed at the docks, and no demand for further canteen accommodation at the Albert Dock has been pressed upon the Board. The dock is served by three public-houses and seven canteens, in all of which full meals can be obtained. If the hon. Member will send me particulars upon which his question is based, I will have them looked into.
