§ 14. Colonel Gomme-Duncan
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether it is in accordance with naval regulations for personnel and official canteens at royal naval stores depots to undertake catering in the neighbourhood in which they are situated.
Canteens at Royal Naval store depots are licensed by the Ministry of Food as catering establishments and if the licence is so endorsed may cater for any social and recreational activities of the depot employees whether held on or off the premises. The regulations do not permit of sale to or catering for the general public.
