HC Deb 10 May 1944 vol 399 c1929W
Sir A. Knox

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works if he is aware of the delay in opening an additional British Restaurant at High Wycombe owing to the fact that though an indent for the necessary equipment was sent to the Ministry of Food on 8th October, 1943, and received by his Depart-merit on 18th December, orders to manufacturers for certain articles were only sent out on 8th February, 1944; and if he will take steps to expedite delivery as the restaurant is urgently required.

Mr. Hicks
