HC Deb 22 June 1953 vol 516 cc1485-6
49. Mr. Murray

asked the hon. Member for Woolwich, West (Mr. Steward) as Chairman of the Kitchen Committee, why the tea served in the cafeteria downstairs is twice as good as the tea served in the Members' cafeteria upstairs; and if he will endeavour to serve Members with the same quality as at present served downstairs.

Mr. Steward

The quality of tea served in the Members' Tea Room is the same as is served in the Cafeteria. I will, however, look further into the matter and endeavour to remove the cause of the hon. Member's complaint.

Mr. Murray

Is the hon. Member not aware that there has been a series of complaints for a long time? If the quality is the same, the quantity is certainly not put in the pot.

Mr. Steward

I was not aware that there had been any complaints whatever. I will, however, look into the matter.
