HC Deb 09 July 1947 vol 439 cc2209-10
51. Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Food if he is aware of the complaints made by the Mayor of Lincoln about the inadequacy of food supplies for the Royal Agricultural Show; and whether it was a local or a London office decision not to accede to the requests of the mayor for better supplies, prior to the opening of the show.

Dr. Summerskill

My right hon. Friend has been advised that in spite of the very large attendance food was available for all those at the show. As my right hon. Friend informed the hon. Member on 18th June, he was satisfied with the arrange- ments made beforehand for supplying food at the show itself and in the shops and that catering establishments were also provided for.
