HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 c1161
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.

Forward to
