HC Deb 26 April 1948 vol 450 c11
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.
