§ 51. Mr. Lipson
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether approval can now be given to the proposals put up by the Borough of Cheltenham for the erection of a dining hall for a British restaurant on the Whaddon housing estate, as further delay will add to the cost of building and equipment, and there is great need for a British restaurant in the district?
Major Lloyd George
Approval was given on 28th April last for a scheme for a British restaurant on the Whaddon housing estate. Difficulties in connection with the supply of steel and timber for the new building required have since arisen and have been under discussion with the Ministry of Works and Buildings. I have arranged for a meeting to be held at Cheltenham immediately with a view to reaching agreement so that the work may proceed without further delay.
