HC Deb 20 November 1941 vol 376 c502W
Lieut.-Colonel Heneage

asked the Minister of Labour the reason for the delay in establishing a canteen for the workers of Messrs. F. Perkins, Limited, of Queen Street, Peterborough?

Mr. Tomlinson

The delay in the establishment of a canteen at this factory has been due, partly to the necessity for requisitioning a building occupied by another firm and also to discussion between the firm and the Government Department concerned regarding the financial arrangements. The difficulties have now been overcome and a full canteen service is expected to be in operation in about a week's time.
