HC Deb 02 July 1941 vol 372 c1351
54. Mr. Hannah

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether his attention has been called to the fact that many landworkers in the Black Country cannot do work on Saturdays as they have to stand in queues to buy food; and will he see that more efficient arrangements are made?

Major Lloyd George

The question of queues in the area to which my hon. Friend refers has already been receiving attention, but I have called for a special report in regard to the circumstances mentioned in the Question.

Mr. Higgs

Does my hon. and gallant Friend not consider that the staggering of pay-days would considerably assist in a solution of this very difficult problem?

Major Lloyd George

I must have notice of that Question.
