§ 29. Mr. Piratin
asked the Minister of Works what is the amount and character of the repairs authorised in the licence granted by his Department to the Café de Paris, Coventry Street; and whether any materials such as steel and timber and others in short supply were to be used.
§ Mr. Key
A licence for £7,500 has been granted for work to the Café de Paris to complete war damage repairs and reinstate the premises after derequisitioning. No structural steel is required, and only a small amount of timber for doors and flooring has been authorised. No significant quantity of other materials in short supply is needed.
