HC Deb 05 August 1943 vol 391 c2427
2. Captain Peter Macdonald

asked the Minister of Labour whether it is his intention to instruct the Catering Wages Commission during the current year to carry out any investigation into the rehabilitation of seaside resorts in the immediate post-war period?

The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Labour (Mr. McCorquodale)

After consultation with those of his colleagues who are directly concerned in this matter, my right hon. Friend issued a formal direction to the Commission on 15th July directing them to inquire into the effect of war conditions on the hotel and catering services and to review the measures necessary to meet the requirements of the public, including visitors from overseas, in the immediate post-war period.

Captain Macdonald

Have steps been taken to find assessors with special knowledge of these areas to assist the Commissioners?

Mr. McCorquodale

I must have notice of that question.
