HC Deb 03 December 1946 vol 431 c50W
109. Lieut.-Colonel Kingsmill

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the majority of the crockery at the Connaught Military Hospital, Hindhead, is chipped and cracked and that the cutlery is rusty; and whether, in view of the number of tuberculosis cases undergoing treatment there and the risk of the spreading of infection, he will ensure that only unblemished utensils are used.

Mr. Bellenger

When these premises were taken over by my Department on 12th September a considerable amount of crockery was cracked and chipped. This was all withdrawn and has been replaced. Every effort is being made to replace poor quality cutlery as quickly as possible, but supply is difficult.
