HC Deb 31 January 1939 vol 343 c12
15. Mr. Benjamin Smith

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that food is sometimes transferred from an incoming to an outgoing vessel without inspection; that the arrangements for the examination of food to be consumed by passengers and crews are often unsatisfactory; and whether it is his intention to strengthen and make more comprehensive the entire system of food inspection on British vessels?

Mr. Stanley

I have received no complaints about the transfer of stocks of provisions from one ship to another, nor in regard to the system of inspection of foodstuffs for consumption on board ship, but I should be pleased to arrange for inquiries to be made into any case which the hon. Member may have in mind, if he will send me particulars.
