HC Deb 06 April 1943 vol 388 cc503-4W
Sir J. Mellor

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food how many British Restaurants have been closed; in how many of these cases have losses been incurred on capital and on trading account, respectively; what are the total amounts of such losses; and what portion of each total will ultimately be borne by the Exchequer?

Mr. Mabane

The information desired by my hon. Friend will take a little time to prepare. I will send him particulars so far as they are available as soon as possible.
