§ 25. Mr. Lipson
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether the hutments he proposes to build are to be used to house evacuated civil servants or as offices?
§ The First Commissioner of Works (Mr. Ramsbotham)
The hutments, as and when it is possible to erect them, will be used for the purpose of offices.
§ 26. Mr. Lipson
asked the First Commissioner of Works whether he has underconsideration any plans for communal meals for evacuated civil servants?
§ Mr. Ramsbotham
Billeted civil servants are provided with two meals daily in their billets. Where adequate local restaurant facilities for the remaining meals are not available, arrangements are made for luncheon clubs or canteens to be set up.
§ Mr. Lipson
Is my right hon. Friend aware that if it is not possible to provide meals in restaurants it is impossible for private individuals to provide such meals; and, in the interest of civil servants and householders, will he not reconsider the matter?
