§ 65. Mr. Garry Allighan
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware of the conditions prevailing at the slaughterhouse at Brewhouse Yard, Gravesend, which is controlled and operated by his Department; that the sanitary inspector is unable to make proper inspection; and, in view of the fact that these conditions were brought to his notice as long ago as 29th June, 1945, if he will make a statement respecting the future use of this slaughterhouse, which provides the fresh meat requirements for a very large area.
§ Mr. Strachey
I know there has been congestion recently because of heavy seasonal killings. These have already been reduced. The large Royal Arsenal Co-operative Society slaughterhouse at Plumstead is about to be reopened, which will greatly relieve the congestion.
