HC Deb 04 February 1942 vol 377 c1192W
Mr. E. Walkden

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether additional evidence of recent black market transactions in Leeds, sent to him, is receiving prompt attention; and whether he will augment the staff of inspectors and investigators in the Yorkshire area?

Major Lloyd George

The answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. I am not aware that the staff of enforcement inspectors in the Yorkshire area is at the moment insufficient but I have no hesitation in assuring my hon. Friend that it will be augmented should the volume of work justify it.
