HC Deb 25 June 1947 vol 439 cc437-8
55. Dr. Santo Jeger

asked the Minister of Food why he was unable to arrange for the opening of a sub-office, as on previous occasions, for the distribution of the new ration books to people living at the southern end of South-East St. Pancras, who now have to go to Camden Town and wait in long queues.

Mr. Strachey

The food executive officer decided that too few people used this sub-office last year to justify the extra staff needed there. She tells us that its absence has not led to long queues at the Camden Town centre or elsewhere in the Borough.
