HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 c582
18. Sir Hugh Lucas-Tooth

asked the Minister of Works how many shops or other buildings were converted during 1946 for use as food offices; what was the average amount spent on such conversion; and whether a decision taken by his Department to convert premises for use as a food office requires the authority of any other Department in order to obtain permission or priority for the work to be done.

Mr. Tomlinson

I am obtaining the information asked for in the first two parts of the Question and will communicate it to the hon. Member. The answer to the last part is in the negative.
