HC Deb 09 July 1941 vol 373 cc176-7
54. Mr. Lindsay

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he will recommend the scheme now operating in Kensington, where all statutory and voluntary effort is properly co-ordinated, and a paid and skilled officer is given executive responsibility?

Major Lloyd George

I am aware of the arrangements for providing meals to which presumably my hon. Friend refers, in the Royal Borough of Kensington. I am always willing to encourage local authorities to employ the services of a skilled officer to superintend such arrangements when the employment of such an officer is justified by the extent of the arrangements.
