HC Deb 17 October 1945 vol 414 cc1161-2
49. Sir Waldron Smithers

asked the Minister of Food how much food supplies were rendered unfit for human consumption owing to the "go slow" at the docks and elsewhere; and what was its value.

The Minister of Food (Sir Benjamin Smith)

If, as I assume, the hon. Member refers to the "go slow" movement at the London Docks, which began at the end of May and lasted until the middle of August, the answer is "None."

Sir W. Smithers

Will the right hon. Gentleman look at the Question again? It refers to the London Docks and elsewhere.

Sir B. Smith

There was no "elsewhere" under those circumstances.
