§ Sir H. NIELD
asked the Food Controller what is the approximate number of persons employed at the medical section of the Ministry of Food in Grosvenor Street; what is the weekly cost of maintaining this section; and whether he considers that the limited jurisdiction now exercised in respect of butter and cream extra rations justifies a continuance of this expense?
§ Mr. McCURDY
The section in question, which is now located at the New County Hall, consists of a part-time medical adviser, two administrative assistants, and fourteen girl clerks. The weekly cost of the section, so far as salaries are concerned, is at present £46 18s. It is hoped to effect a considerable reduction of this expense in the immediate future.
