HC Deb 27 March 1945 vol 409 c1330W
Commander King-Hall

asked the Minister of Education when he proposes to de-requisition Warren Farm, Formby, as a cooking centre; and why the Brighton Road centre cannot be used for this purpose.

Mr. Butler

It is intended to de-requisition the premises used as a cooking depot at Warren Farm on the completion of alternative provision which has been agreed upon and for which detailed proposals are now being prepared by the local education authority. The Brighton Road Cooking Depot was provided originally for emergency purposes, and after use for a short time was found impracticable for a regular daily service for the requisite number of school meals on account of the unsuitable character of the premises.
