HC Deb 23 July 1941 vol 373 cc891-2
57. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food the number of mobile canteens in the populous districts of Scotland?

Major Lloyd George

There are two Queen's Messenger Convoys in Scotland, each consisting of eight vehicles. In addition to these there are 157 mobile canteens operated by local authorities and voluntary societies which are available for emergency feeding. Of these, 116 are located in what may be regarded as the most populous districts, more than 50 per cent, being in Clydeside.
