HC Deb 18 March 1920 vol 126 c2408W

asked the Minister of Health what progress has been made in the removal of the stores dump at Bromley-le-Bow; what was the nature of these stores; and did any part come from Russia?

Colonel WILSON

I have been asked to reply. Removal of Government stores commenced on Saturday, 13th March, and is now in progress. The removal will continue until the whole Government stock is cleared off. Up to date, one-fifth of the stock has actually been removed. The stores consist of life-belts, bedding and mess utensils and horse stall fittings. None of these stores came from Russia. It is understood that in addition to the Government stores under the control of the Ministry of Shipping, there are warehoused in the same premises 461 tons of foodstuffs privately owned.
