§ Mr. McCorquodale
Canteens are known to exist in 115 tinplate or steel works in which more than 250 persons are employed; 93 of these supply hot meals in the full sense of the term and at least 14 others supply hot food, sandwiches and hot drinks. The number of such establishments without canteen facilities is 10. Some of these have messrooms with facilities for warming food and boiling water and in four of the cases canteens are in course of construction. Detailed information about the establishments employing less than 250 persons is not readily available.
