HC Deb 30 June 1919 vol 117 c626W

asked the Food Controller whether he has received a resolution from the Consumers' Council pointing out the importance of Billingsgate Market being enlarged and its approaches greatly improved, in order to improve the facilities for the food supply of the inhabitants of London; and whether ho proposes to take any action in the matter?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. With regard to the second part, the matter is the immediate concern of the Corporation of the City of London, which is the market authority, but I am watching anxiously the general question of transport facilities so far as it affects the food supply of the country.
