HC Deb 26 February 1941 vol 369 c522
80. Mr. J. H. Hollins

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will consider the provision of a canteen in the vicinity of the Victoria and Albert Docks, Silver-town, in order to supply hot meals to the workers in the docks and factories in that area?

The Additional Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour (Mr. Tomlinson)

My right hon. Friend has obtained a detailed report on the feeding facilities for workers employed at these docks, and is actively considering, in consultation with the Ministry of Food, what can be done to improve them as quickly as possible. The problem is not merely one of opening one or more additional canteens, which may not in fact be the best way of proceeding.
